Default Gas cap/trunk lever opens both at same time

So I just purchased a 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5 and the gas cap/trunk lever is stuck together. Like when I want to open one I have to open both. Is it just because they like rusted together or could it be something else? And how would I fix this? But new parts or could I free it up some how

Are the handles stuck together or could it be the cables? I don't have a trunk so I'm not sure what the sedan handles look like, but perhaps you could get enough access to squirt some PB blaster in there and see how things operate in a day or so?

Yeah like when I pull 1 both of the handles come up and open what they're supposed to. I'm assuming the handles are stuck together
