Why does temperature decrease with increasing altitude?

Decreasing air pressure.

Air expands as it rises, thus higher altitudes have a lower density of molecules. The fewer gas molecules (like nitrogen, oxygen, or carbon dioxide), the lower the chances of them colliding with each other, which is the process that releases energy and consequently raises temperatures – the fewer collisions, the lower the temperature.
