Possible weak fuel pump and/or clogged fuel filter. Modern in-the-tank fuel pumps usually go out slowly, getting weaker over time.

Sounds to me like your transmission fluid is low. When you go up a hill, the pump is unable to pick up the transmission fluid, hence the speeding up of the engine with no resistance (load) from the transmission.

I have included a link, compliments of Auto Zone that explains the type of transmission fluid you should use and how to check the level.
