Why does my fuel pump fuse keep blowing???

So what causes fuses to blow? Cause this is the second time the fuse blew and I can't start the car because of it because the fuel pump isn't pumping fuel? So what can it be.....bad fuel pump, bad ground???? help. thanks

Maybe the fuel pump relay? Or a shorted 12+ wire?
