Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a no start condition. It could definitely be a loss of fuel pressure but it may also be a loss of spark, it could be an exhaust restriction or even fuel contamination.

Do you hear the fuel pump run when the key is turned on or are you able to test fuel pressure?
Have you checked for spark?
