I'd say your fuel pump failed on you. Check to see if it is powering up or buzzing when you turn the key. It's located under the access panel under the passenger side rear seat cushion. Change the fuel filter as well.

Remember that you fuel pump needs to be change every 50,000 miles. The fuel pump is another possibility. You could also have debris in the tank that is plugging up the intake. It happens.

Fyi , driving with low gas level causes the fuel pump to heat up during operation. Gas itself acts as a coolant for the pump once submerged. Keeping a good level of gas is optimal....
