Default Steering wheel stuck in locked position

Help! My 2005 Altima steering wheel is stuck in the locked position and the ignition key will not move. I've tried all the hints in other posts, like wiggling and jiggling the key along with moving the steering wheel slowly, medium, and fast...nothing works to free up the ignition key and allow me to turn it. Worst of all, its parked at Walgreens with the front toward the curb, so towing will be challenging. If anyone could help me I sure would appreciate it.

Are the wheels turned?

Got it figured out. The keys I was using had warned down so much that they were not turning the ignition. I had an older key that I had lost a year ago, but found it recently, tried it and it turned the ignition. Unfortunately, when I lost this key, I bought another one and reprogrammed the car, so I had to pay a locksmith to come out and reprogram.
thanks.
