Your fuel pump maybe going out. It is pretty common on those that when the fuel pump starts to fail the pressures at key up will be below 50psi and have just enough to run the engine but not let it start. But if you use something to get it started you can drive it. I would have the fuel pressure tested and if it is low get get that pump replaced. You may want to change the fuel filter aswell.
