Balky 08 honda element

I have an 08 awd honda element w/ 70k miles-last 2 yrs my element has had slight hesitation when slowly accelerated to about 30 mph and seems to ‘balk’ in the 25 -35 mph zone.No problems noted when accelerating quickly in that zone and car performs well otherwise. I have changed air filter added dry gas in winter but the problem is year round. I use generic gas.
Any thoughts ?
thanks gang and I look forward to any suggestions.
My best

When’s the last time you changed the sparkplugs & filters? 70K seems like they’d be about due.
