How old is the battery? Has the car been driven mostly in the northern U.S. or
mostly in the southern U.S. since the current battery was installed? (Northern
U.S.: Batteries last longer.) Had many jumpstarts with this battery?

Got a voltmeter? If so, with the car off, what is the battery terminal voltage?
Now with the car running, turn on the headlights; what is the battery terminal
voltage reading?

Air filter, fuel filter, plugs, ignition wires, distributor cap and maybe rotor:
When changed last? All parts OEM cost around $130 total. If you don't do them
soon, they'll probably be due within a couple years at the latest, anyway. Good
investment.

Have you switched gas stations recently? Try a new gas station.

Add a bottle of Chevron Techron (~ $6) to your gas tank next time it's near
empty. Fill up.

Probably not as critical these days, but maybe try to keep the gas tank over
half-way full at all times, especially in the winter.

when it is cold outside your gasoline and oil and shit are cold also so it
is harder for it to start

What Caroline said. Cold weather overtaxes the ignition in many ways, and
fresh tune-up parts should get you running like new. You may also have water
in the gas - auto parts stores have additives to "dry" the gas.
