Here are a few other areas where you may want to check if applicable to your current situation.
I hope you can find out what the culprit is as I know how frustrating it can be.Here are a few other reasons why your car may not be starting besides what you have already mentioned.
COMMON CAUSES OF NO COMPRESSION
Broken timing belt or chain (Belt failure will prevent the valves from opening. The engine will NOT run if the belt has broken, and it may have bent valves or other damage as a result of the belt breaking).
Broken camshaft (This can happen on an overhead cam engine if the engine has overheated, warped the head and seized the camshaft).
Plugged catalytic converter (Creates a restriction that causes exhaust backpressure to back up. Engine may start but usually dies within a minute or two)
I guess the most logical one in your case, after reading your story regarding when it happened would be a timing belt.
I had something similar to this happen on my '86 blazer. I was driving along and then "blip", at 55+ mph happily cruising along, the engine just cut out on me and wouldn't start again.
It would crank but wouldn't start. It ended up being an ignition module but you said they already changed your distributor so they more than likely checked or changed the module also.
Good luck with this!

Keep it simple and replace the fuel filter first, if thr fiiler has not been replaced within 30,000 miles or 1 year. Then it's a good chance that it's going to be the fuel filter.

Check to see if there's power at the fuel pump when cranking the engine. If no power, check the relay and oil pressure sender switch. If the engine looses oil pressure, it stops the fuel pump from running to protect the engine. The relay is located on the firewall above the master cylinder.
