Brokedown, help?

Driving along, very slight incline, and all of a sudden the resistance on the gas pedal lessens SLIGHTLY, and it stops delivering gas. Can get it to start, but it idles for about a second and a half at maybe 150 RPM before dieing, pumping gas does nothing. My bet is fuel pump-Anyone agree, disagree, have other suggestions, anicdotes, or any other sort of wisdom or general banter to offer? Anything would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance.

Oh, and it's a 94 2.5L 5 speed, just over 208K miles. One previous owner was an old lady.

You should be able to hear your fuel pump run. Also could be throttle position sensor or fuel regulator. Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator and if you have fuel there then its bad.
