Default 2002 Honda accord lx sedan. Transmission problems. Please help.?

My first car. I'm 17 worked all summer to get it and today was not a good one. I was driving home and stopped at a stop. Took off and I noticed the rpm went up but it didn't speed up like before. Kept going and it kept doing it. When I hit the gas and held on it would go up but once I let go of the gas and hit it again the rpms would go up but not the speed. I had to go up hill to get to my house and the rpms went up and it barely made it up the hill. I left it at home and didn't drive it no more. I don't know what it could be. Can it be something small or is it the whole transmission. I have no idea how much it is but I worked hard to get it and now this happens.. If its happened to anyone before what was the cause and how much did you pay to fix it. I just started working and have about 600 saved up. Any ideas on what it could be?

Your transmission is slipping, badly. Go get some Lucas transmission treatment and put that in through the transmission dipstick and pray that works for now. Then, keep saving because you're likely going to either need a new transmission or need to have yours rebuilt, the bands inside the transmission aren't grabbing anymore which is causing the RPM spike with no power, usually due to lack of service to the transmission.
