metal gate door doesn't fit

I have a metal fence going around my pool and the door doesn't fit anymore. Over time the door entrance has gotten smaller than the opening. The door is now approx 14 inch wider than the enterance. The posts are cementeded into the dirt. Any ideas on how to fit it? I was thinking of buying a jack to try and widen the entrance.

The gate has grown fourteen inches? I would like to see several pictures before making any more comments.

Oh, a quarter of one inch, that's a bit easier to believe than 14 inches. Could be ground shifting from any number of causes or maybe the hinges have slipped on their attachment points. Still need pictures.
