97 olds silhouette ran great, run out of gas put gas back in it and now it won't start. Is it possible that there is gas line freeze or did the fuel pump die due to running out of gas?

In tank fuel pumps are cooled and lubricated by the fuel in the tank. When you run a car out of gas, it pumps a lot of air through the pump which overheats it and causes some severe wear and many times, failure when they cool off.
You will need to use a fuel pressure gauge to verify this
