Need help badly I'm in a bind. ASAP

Guys I need your help badly. I took my two roomates out in my truck to ride in the snow. Well on the way back I noticed it wasnt running right. So I pulled over and let it idle for a few minutes. It was like it was about to run out of fuel. Well after idleing for a few minutes I drove it about a mile up the road and it started doing it again. This time it cut completely off. It idled down then shut off. Well after letting it sit for a few minutes, and tuning it back to stock, it cranked back. Well it did this several more times and each instance the time interval that it would run would get less and less. it was also a pain in the butt to start back after 5-10minutes. Also when I would try to give it gas it acted like it was fluding itself, it wouldnt build any rpms or boost. One time it left me sitting in the middle of the road. Luckily it is snowy and nobody was out. Now it is sitting at walmart cause it wont make it up the hill to my apartment. It shut off midways when I tried. Guys please help. I am at college and I have no tools or garage. I am only an hour away from home but this thing wont be able to make it. Could this be a bad injector, glow plug, egr, etc....

Also I had this problem earlier today
Glow Plugs going bad?

Pull your fuel filter and you'll know if its gelled. Could be the CPS going bad, if it is after awhile it shouldn't start at all.

I am in Boone NC and it is 7 degrees here. If temperature would have anything to do with it.

The first things to check would be fuel flow into the bowl and the condition of the filter. Also sounds like it could maybe be the CPS acting up from getting snow on it and stuff.

I thought that it may have been my fuel gelling but wasnt sure, so I went and got some fuel, which I allready had a little less than 3/4 of a tank. I thought it may help to get some fresh fuel in there.

Could they have done something wrong when they changed my oil that would cause this?
