[DML] Won't Start

Bought my car a few months ago, been nothing "fun and adventures" 
since.  All and all, I consider myself fortunate and have had 
relatively few problems with this high mileage car; besides the new 
tires, oil changes, filters etc? However lately, after sitting for a 
period of a week with out being driven car will not start.  
Electrics seem to be in working order as the car will crank and 
crank as long as the battery will allow but not turn over.  This is 
the second time such an experience has accrued; the first was a few 
weeks ago.  I was able to start the car that time with the every so 
trusty, can of ether, applied liberally.  Car drove and did great 
for those few weeks until recently and will not turn over.  I am 
sure I could get it going again with more ether but this seems like 
a quick fix and am only masking the problem. Could it be that the 
fuel pump is not priming but works after fuel is flowing to the 
engine? Could it be bad gas?  Distributor? If anybody has some 
suggestions/recommendations I would be thankful.
