2002 Camaro won't start

Alright, I've got a 2002 Camaro. Driving home from school today, I go to put it in cruise control at 60. I do this, but as soon as I let go, it starts slowing down. Pressing the gas pedal did nothing, so I shifted into neutral to try to restart it. It doesn't start.

I pull over, put it in park, and try starting again. It turns over, and seems to want to start, but then it shuts off again.

It has about 104k miles on it, and hasn't had anything like this happen before. Does anyone have an idea what it might be? It isn't out of gas, it's got about a half tank still.

Well we just had some guys look at it, and they say that they think it is the fuel pump. They say that the pump itself will cost $370. Is that a good price?

What diagnostic codes did you get out of it?

None yet, the guy who it was taken to will be getting the codes tomorrow to make sure it was the pump. The guys who picked it up listened to it try to start, and said it was most likely the fuel pump.

When we went to pick it up, it started and ran for about 10 seconds, before sputtering out again and going back to not wanting to start.

Tap into the service port on the fuel rail with a fuel pressure gauge.Key up and the 2 second fuel pump prime should show 48psi.
With the track record of these in tank pumps..I would not be suprised if it failed.
