The cable might be pinched but it is more likely the fuel cable is frayed and caught in the cable casing preventing it from moving. I would check under the pedal and make sure nothing rolled under it. I would check the throtle on the other end and see if it moves by hand. If it does then the cable is being prevented from moving and you need to figure out why. It is very unlikely the cable is frozen since it should never get water on it.
Sounds like the battery might be dead. Charge it up and disconnect the post and see if it holds a charge all night. If it does then your car is draining the battery while it is parked. If it doesn't the battery is dead and needs replacing.

It could be water frozen in your fuel system (fuel line, fuel filter, fuel pump or pickup or fuel rail). If you can get the car into a garage try letting it warm up, otherwise wait for a warmer day, to try starting it. If it is water in the fuel, you can add "dry gas" to your fuel which is an alcohol product designed to be an antifreeze and to absorb the water. However, if the water is already frozen in your system, this won't help without warming the car up first in some way. If you haven't changed your fuel filter in the last year, I would do that as well. Water can easily build up in a filter and freeze there in extremely cold weather. If this problem is water related, also fill the tank completely with a fresh quality gasoline, and add dry gas for the next several fill ups to help get any water in your fuel system out to keep it from happening again.
If it is frozen, adding Heet will no thaw it. It has to mix with the fuel first to prevent freezing. Pretty unusual for water to be in gas but it could be possible. Don't over look other fuel situations, i.e. fuel filter, fuel pump etc.
it sound as i9f you have a frozen gas line you may have to put the car in a place where it can get warm and put some gas line ati freeze in the gas tank also make sure you have a good charge on the battery its cold here in Michigan too wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
gas dosent freeze but if you had water in the tank its possible the line may be partially glogged add some heet to the tank and try cranking it over and see if that dosent help you may have to use starter fluid to get the gas flowing again
Check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay first, before replacing the fuel pump. The fuses and relays are behind the the ash tray, The fuses are labelled. The relay is on the left side of the relay rack, closest to the big round bulb out sensor.
But before that, how about pouring some gas line anti-freeze or fuel injector cleaner into the tank?
