Could be clogged fuel injectors, or it could be the mass airflow sensor giving it some trouble. There's a fuel induction cleaning service offered by many dealerships that will take care of the problem for you if that's the issue, and is a good idea to have done anyway even if it's not the root problem. Usually costs around $120.
