I suspected the fuel pump, and after replacing it, the car started right up. It was actually pretty easy to change out, too!

Could it possibly be your fuel pump going bad? These cars are common for fuel pumps failing. I just had to put one in a 2001 Sunfire. We could start it after spraying starting fluid in the throttle body, but it would die shortly after.

I had a similar issue, and it turned out to be a loose wire in the steering column.
