Could be a alternator or battery. Measure the voltage at the battery with the headlamps ON - should be 12 volts with the car not running, and 13.7 to 15.1 with the engine running.

to check fuel pressure you have to use a gauge not just push on the schrader valve to see if gas squirts out.these systems run at 35lbs pressure anything much less and it will not start.also check the fuel volume as if its low the pump cannot supply enough to fuel the motor to run it won`t.

Take a battery that has a good charge on it or 12 volts put it in and start it then take a multimeter and put the red lead on to the power lead on the back of the alternator and ground the black lead.It should read between 13-14.5 volts anything more or less replace alternator.If alternator checks out ok check battery voltage after charging it.Must have at least 12-12.6 volts anything less replace battery.

Try maybe testing the starter solenoid, battery (bad cell) or alternator.
I would check your battery cables before I do anything.
How does it run going down the road? Do any of your lights ever dim?
