You may have gotten bad gas, water contamination which froze and is preventing gas flow. if the car starts normally once it warms up then I would never use that gas station again.

add a gas additive for obsorbing water. personally Seafoam has never let me down also if their is someway you can heat your car up without starting it e.g. I bought a $40 magnetic oil pan heater at a local tractor store that I use to preheat my enigine in cold weather. but the best choise is just to have it towed (lowest risk of damaging the car) hope this helps.

Remove the battery cables and clean them as well as the battery terminals. You've lost connection due to oil and dirt building up inside them.

Car wont' start? Please define the symptoms - otherwise the answers will be so far out in left field they will be useless. Does it crank over (starter spins the engine but the engine fails to catch). Does it NOT crank over (do you get clicking or any other noise when the key is turned to the start position). What happened when you jumped it? (of the two options above)
