Try turning the steering wheel back and forth abruptly. If not, did you park on a slight incline? My experience has been that sometimes if a vehicle rolls back a little, it will lock it up.

Ok the most common problem with this situation is the tumblers in the lock came apart. you will ned to either replace the lock or have a repair shop replace it. The parts are not all that expensive, but the job is a bit dificult for a beginner. Cause?? well use is one cause if the car has a ton of miles on it and the ignition switch has be used a lot that could have caused the tumblers to fail. another common reason is a heavy key chain pulling down on the lock cylinder. The third cause is... it just happened. I have seen brand new cars with less than 3k miles on them come in with the same problem.
Ok to swum it up.. replace the lock cylinder, dealer or a lock smith can key it the same as your curent key. you can most likly purchase the parts from NAPA or other parts houses. You will need to gather a detailed instructions if you plan to do it yourself as there is not enough room or time to spell out the entire procedure here. If you do not have the tools and dont think you will do a few more of these repairs then it is most likly less expensive to have a reputable repair shop do the work. Good luck
