Got my oil changed. Same night I saw an oil leak. Went in three days later, was told my oil filter cup gasket blew. They changed my oil again with new filter and gasket. Three days later after driving with no issues my truck will not start. Is this from the oil change? When I went in to get it fixed I was a quart low.

You need to list the engine size, mileage, transmission type, and symptoms so we know the specifics. Without that information, it is extremely unlikely the oil leak is related to the other problem. If by "no start", you mean the starter does not crank the engine, that is an electrical problem. If the starter does crank the engine, but it does not run, that is a sensor, ignition, or fuel supply problem. There are a few engines that have safe guards built in to prevent them from running when the oil level is low, but one quart is not that big of an issue.
