Depending on how cold it is, usually its just a bad battery. I would have your battery tested to make sure it's up to snuff. If it is, I would check your starter and have it bench tested. You can simulate cold weather by putting the starter in your freezer and then bench testing it. Also check the condition of your positive battery terminal as well as your negative one, and make sure they are free from corrosion.

Really need more information from you. Problem on level ground, uphill, cold temps, cold car, what gear, weather, etc.
Without any other information, the first thing would do is to check for a clogged fuel filter. Now, some cars do not have fuel filters anymore so in that case, there is the possibility that your fuel pump is failing.
