24 hp Briggs and Stratton engine dying out

I have a one year old Craftsman 24 hp lawn tractor that ran well last year and once earlier this spring. However, now it will start and run for about 5 minutes and die out. I can restart it but it will do the same ,but will die within a shorter period of time. I have changed the fuiel filter, plugs are ok. What's up, can anybody suggest anything? By the way, the oil stick says it's below half.

Well, you shouldn't be running it that low on oil, so I would fill it up or change it if it needs changing before running it any more. That's not the problem though... try loosening the gas cap and see if it runs longer. The vent in the cap could be clogged.
