You're not getting any spark. Start with the battery. You may not be getting a good connection. Have someone give you a jump start and see if it gets a charge. Shut off the engine, wait a about 5 minutes or so. Try to start the car. If it doesn't start then you definitely need a battery. Another old trick would be to jump start it, once the engine is running- disconnect the battery, if it stays running that rules out the alternator. Leaving the battery as the culprit.
