5 Speed 2003 Honda Civic Semi-Stalling

My 2003 Honda Civic only has 42k miles on it. Recently, after several routine trips on the NJ Turnpike of about 60 miles, followed by a short rest, my car seems to almost stall in 1-3 gears. I apply the gas and nothing happens. The car doesnt stall but just jerks before finally kicking in. Any thoughts? Thanks

These are symptoms of a dirty fuel filter.
Change it.
