Strange dying issue

Kind of a strange issue, my guess is a fuel feed problem but not sure so looking for some input.

The last couple of days I start the truck in the morning and it fires right up and runs fine for as short as 30 seconds idling in the driveway but this morning it was nearly 2 minutes as I was almost to the freeway come to a stoplight and idle will start dropping takes about 10 seconds to go from normal to 0. Cycle key and truck fires up just fine and never does it again, it has been the same every day.

I thought it was my fuel pump not turning on but when it died today I got out and listened for the pump before cycling the key and it was on but I don't have a gauge on the fuel so I am leaning that way, no CEL or anything.
