This is true Kelly but they can also check to see if fuel pump fuse is blown or if fuel filter is clogged to the point fuel can not get through it.

How many miles on your Pontiac? Fuel pumps are usually good for a least 100,000 miles, but sometimes they fail sooner. As posted above, running the tank low frequently can cause excessive wear and heat build up at the fuel pump. Partially clogged fuel filters will overwork a pump also. With a 10 year old car it was probably just time for it to be replaced.
