Leaking fuel cap in a Cherokee 140

Last weekend I sumped three "sumpers" full of water (completely non-blue) before I could get fuel again from the left wing of my Cherokee. It is parked outside and it had rained heavily. The plane had been sitting for a few months and had been refuelled just before the rain started so the gas caps were manipulated for the first time after a few months.

So I suspect the problem is leaky seals. Where/ how do I get replacements?
