gas cap leak

I noticed gas leaking around the gas cap on my 04 sportsman 500. The threads look ok, but there is a rubber gasket inside the cap on top that got twisted. I pushed it back in place with a screwdriver and it worked for a few minutes then started leaking again. It seems like the gasket doesn't want to stay in place now. Can I get a new gasket in there to seal it up or do I need a whole new cap?
