Chevy 1500 blows fuelpump fuses

Hi!
My Chevy 1500 -88 (Silverado) has blown 2 fuelpump fuses in a couple of weeks. My question is: can a clogged fuelfilter cause the fuelpump to draw too
much current? Or is my only opt. to replace the fuelpump?
Thanks, Johan Olofsson

I'd check the wiring for a short before I did anything else.
