Intermittant No-Start, Shut-Off

I've been having the subject issue for about a week. Last week-end, mu car took a few extra cranks to start, occasionally. Twice,
during the week, it shut off on me while driving, just at the end of my block. Stared up fine after that. Both times I returned home
and switched cars. Haven't been able to replicate it. No CEL. I am going to try to get to Autozone today to see if there are any
codes. No recent work done and gas cap is tight.

A friend suggested this might be related to the anti-theft, due to the battery going in my key fob.... I've had the car for almost exactly
8 years and am on the original fobs/batteries... In the absence of any codes, could this be the issue? Would there be any other
symptoms of a key fob battery going? Car runs fine otherwise.
