My gas gauge is always showing 1/2 a tank. Sometimes it will go a little lower than 1/2 a tank. What could the problem be and how could i fix it?

I beleive the sending unit in that car is a float style. Meaning it has a float at the end of a reastat. Based on the position of the float (height of fuel level) the contact touches a certain spot on the spring and sends a specific amount of voltage to the guage. If it sticks in one position it looks like you always have the same amount of gas. Could be the problem.

Sounds like a problem with the float like was said.
