Prime it from the engine with a brake bleeder if you can; otherwise floor it until it kicks (then let off the gas straightaway.)  Until that pump gets primed, nothing's gonna happen; on the other hand, if you can smell gas that got through the exhaust system it's something else, like your spark coil deciding to fry itself from running dry, or a cracked distributor component (you can wire up a plug outside the engine to test the bad-coil theory.  See OSHA for extra notes on how to do that, (cough) though your electronics package usually picks up on egregious stuff like that, if it were a more recent Malibu.

Turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump to prime, you ran out of gas, if it was weak to begin with that may have finished it.
