Sounds like you may have a bleed down in the fuel system,this can be caused by a faulty fuel pressure regulator,bad fuel filter or fuel pump.

I would replace the fuel filter. Your truck may have a carburetor and if so it may need a rebuild. In the meantime I would use a good fuel system cleaner like Seafoam.
