Default 98 Saturn SL2 key stuck in ignition

I was driving my 98 Saturn SL2 and I put the car in park and turned the key off. The key wouldn't come out or turn either direction. I can't start the car. I tried messing with the shifter and turning the steering wheel back and forth while trying to remove the key but it won't budge. I need help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Shoot some powdered graphite, or wd40 in a pinch, into the cylinder and work it around.
