I just got laid off and I'm 17. What do I do now?

I was doing data entry at a promotions company, and today, they got rid of at least 80 percent of their keyers. On top of that a few of the remaining keyers quit because they car pooled with the people that got laid off. So, now I'm jobless and can't pay for gas. I got above minimum wage too, and since I hadn't been working there for more than 2 months, I can't get unemployment pay. It appears I'm SOL. Help? Fast food just won't do. It doesnt pay nearly as well as what I got doing data entry.

If several keyers quit that they didn't expect to then they probably have some openings. Your first move should be to ask for your job back.
