Losing gas power

Here's the issue and I can't figure out why: I will drive 5 miles or so and all of a sudden I'll lose gas power. In other words the car will still be on but when I press the gas nothing happens at all. The car then coasts, and once it gets to about 10MPH the engine cuts off. I can tell it cuts off because the oil and battery lights come on. Electric still works and there is a new battery in there too. Full gas tank as well.

What would cause a car to lose power and cut off mid drive???
