Truck pooped out.

Well this bites. We were 45 miles from home pulling our fiver to Tennessee for vacation. I didn't buy gas before leaving so I pulled into a gas station and put in about 25 gallons. I made it about 50 feet and the thing wouldn't go above a very rough idle. I see the obvious possibility of bad gas but it seems strange I didn't make it out of the parking lot before it all went south. I was given the opportunity of a lifetime to watch people buy gas for a couple of hours waiting on a tow and they all made it out fine. Needless to say the vacation is toast but look at all the money I've saved. If it is indeed bad fuel there will be the upcoming heavy-weight championship fight with the gas station. Anyway, does someone have any other ideas on what it might be?
