yes the gas cap could cause this,also check evap. purge solenoid and hoses for cracks or kinks,the solenoid is on the inner fender and has 2 hoses, one to the intake and one to the canister, the most common cause of this code is a defective purge solenoid.

MAYBE. The loss of gas cap can cause water and dirt to enter the fuel tank, and fuel filter, and lead to a loss in power. get a new cap and the fuel filter repalced. the loss of power may be another problem, but you will need these items replaced first.

if it's just an emissions code, it won't give you problems until it is time for inspection. you should find out that it isn't something new.
