This usually indicates a failed fuel pump. You may want to check fuel pressure to be absolutely certain.

As long as the gauge reads correctly, you can usually get away with changing only the pump and pre-filter (sock). It is a lot cheaper to swap pump & sock only but many people get the whole assembly due to the effort involved in doing the job.
Be careful with the vent tube fittings and sensors on the top of the tank or you could double or triple the cost of the job.There are already several threads on this. For some of the more recent ones, search on my name using the search term "ratchet".

I would start with fuel filter and a bottle of heet or your preferred fuel treatment. It's cheap and easy. I bought a Buick some yrs ago, the lady told me 2 diff shops tried and couldn't get it to start. Brand new pump, injectors, plugs, whole 9 yards. The one thing they didn't touch was the fuel filter. I bought the car for $50 because it had a no start problem as well. I bought $5 filter and drove it home same day. shortly after I sold the car for $1200.

If you ran it with that old gas you are going to want to use seafoam with your next fill up.
If it starts better with new filter for a short time again, you will need to drop the tank and thoroughly clean it. Fill up and add seafoam. Run the first tank then have your injectors cleaned because everything that comes off in the fuel lines and from the pump while using any fuel injector cleaner makes it way thru your injectors, some of which may get stuck. If you drop the tank and can afford the pump. Two birds with one stone
