there is a relay in the box under the hood for the fogs, move them around and see if the light go back on, other than that check the switch inside, check if your lights are in low beam, and finally check the fog lights themselves and the harness going to them

I've had both bulbs go out rather close together before, so I wouldn't totally rule that out. I've found that the Sylvania brand seems to last much longer as a replacement bulb for the stock lights. Whatever GM used didn't last very long at all.

Here are the two driving light bulb brands that I've had the most success with on my 'bird. The Sylvania 880 & Napa 880.
