Could be a number of things
Sounds like it the gas valve. If the gas Valve isn't opening or is burnt out then no gas will flow through it.
Also it the pilot is blocked then you wont get and gas coming through to light it up.
I am forever replacing gas valves on the buffalo series units and have found this to be quite a common problem on older units.

If your pilot looks a little weak chances are the pilot tube has a sight blockage in it. You will need to turn the gas off remove the pilot tube and get access to the opening of the tube and blow it out with your mouth air compressor or something. Reinstall pilot tube turn gas back on and re-try lighting the pilot. Now should look stronger and if it don't hold the thermocouple is bad and will need to replace it. You might be able to get one at Lowes or a hardware store like Ace Hardware. let me know what happens . ken

You need to bled the line longer and when you get lited hold down for a good minute.When the gas gave out ,there could trash in the line.I would take the line off and blow gas through it undtil you can smell it.

Most likely it's time to replace the thermocouple, the safety device that makes sure the pilot is lit. New thermocouples are cheap and you can find them at most hardware stores and the big-box places (Home Depot, etc.)
Here is a site with basic information to get you going.
