My igniting switch won't turn with smart key

My wife put gas yesterday morning, but when get thing back in to turning it on, the smart key won't turn. I turned the steering wheel left and right to try to turn it on that way and nothing I spend over an hr and a half trying to wiggle the key in and out, in and out, in and out and nothing. Is this my ignition switch or key, maybe that need to be replace or ignition lock cylinder. Please anyone with similar symptom or car expert advisory help me :,(

Do you hear the familiar "capture" noise when you insert the key?

I would first check the battery, both for voltage as well as load. Sometimes they go that quickly, and you should at least rule it out.

The usual "capture" noise is applied but that's as far as it goes. I recently recharged my battery about 3 weeks ago so I haven't charged it or check for loss of power. Will check on that...
