So my pickup died today...

So I leave my house today and I get down the road not even a mile and it starts to die, kinda like its not getting fuel. It finally dies, and the battery light came on when it started to die.
It will still turn over but wont start. It did start once but when I put it in gear it died.
So what could be wrong? Could it be the batteries or alternator?

make sure your batteries are charged up and change your cps(cam position sensor).

Well I was thinking the fuel pump or the cps sensor. But when I got home yesterday I tried to start it and it started right up. I drove it today and it doesn't seem to have anything wrong with it...
