My accelerator is sticking bad. It is getting worse. It stickes worse in the cold weather. If I warm it up in the morning before leaving it seams to do better but I still have trouble with it freezing up and not taking the gas then I am stuck on the side of the road for a while. What do we need to do?

Try cleaning your throttle plate first with choke cleaner on both sides as well as iac hole if you have one. Then check for a bad cable if cable driven.
