Cool Honda Civic Check Engine Light non responsive to gas

I have a 2001 Honda Civic with 130,000 miles. Recently my daughter and I took a highway trip (360 miles round trip). The car drove perfectly until we made it back home and were off the highway driving on local roads at 35 mph. The check engine light came on and the gas pedal became unresponsive and would rev. We pulled over, thurned off the car, turned it back on and with the check light still on, drove home with no troubles.

I took the car to my mechanic who checked the sensors and they checked out fine.

My daugher and I took another trip (200 miles round trip) and once again after making it back home and exiting the highway the check engine light came on again and the gas pedal was unresponsive and the car revved. We pulled over, turned the car off and on, and the car drove fine (the ck engine light stayed on). The next morning, the check engine light was off and the car has driven well since.

The gas cap has been firmly in place...

Any ideas of what is going on?
