 I am around 14 volts when running and 12 at startup. The funny thing  is, 
when I start the car after it sitting for a few days it starts pretty normal  
and cranks over quick but if I drive a couple miles and shut it off then start  
it again it turns over very slow and barely starts. I'll try the gas cap thing 
 but I'm pretty sure its the pump because I can hear it as soon as I start 
the  car as well.

It sounds like you have a weak battery. What does your  voltage gauge read 
with the engine running? If it's between 12-14 volts,  your charging system 
is ok.

As for the fuel pump, have you tried  loosening the gas cap? MIne hums and 
buzzes due to suction after I turn  the car off. Just a thought, but it could 
be what you're  hearing.
