Default 1990 K5 no oil pressure, won't run

My 1990 K5 is back at it again, the same problem as last time but now even worse. It wil only run for about 3-4 seconds if I pour fuel down the throttle body. Today, when I turned the key it was doing the same, cranking but it wouldn't run. What's going on with my engine? Should I junk the truck?

EDIT: 3:07 PM June June 18 I installed a new fuel filter and it's doing the exact same thing.

It was bad gas. I put in a new fuel filter and threw some drygas in the tank and it's been running great for 3 days now. Oil pressure is back and it's around 40-50 which is good for an old 350 ;]
