3/8s inch hole in gas cap surround

anyone have one of these? is it supposed to be there? Its to the right of the cap dead center at 3 O'clock, its a clean hole. I didnt know what its for it why its there? just wondering. I covered it with a piece of tape just because I dont like random holes in places on my jeep. :O

I believe it is for the strap on the gas cap.

Yep, the gas cap has a plastic tether that has a little double-barb on the end of it that is inserted through that hole.
