Angry sticky gear shift stick

I have a 94 Cougar XR7 and a 96 Thunderbird both with a 4 speed automatic on the console. The 94 Cougar shifter is stiff and hard to move, especially when it is very cold. I bought the Thunderbird new, and it moved freely, but now it is getting tight also, still not as bad as the Cougar, which is hard. Is this just a matter of oiling something, or is this more major, like a bushing in the trans?

You might have to lube the cable where it slides in the tranny.

Was anything spilled down the console? If so, this will cause that problem.
