Intake/fuel injectors/overall fuel system is probably clogged. Run a fuel cleaning system through your car and hopefully it clean out all the dirt, varnish, etc. Something as simple as Lucas fuel treatment or Seafoam in your tank should clean it out after you go through a tank of gas.

When was the last time you had your spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor changed. I would start with having those items inspected or replaced if needed.
