2004 Mazda MPV V6 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles

For the past six months I have been dealing with problems. It all started when I was pulling out of my driveway and the car felt funny almost like a flat tire so I pulled over and the tires were fine so I started driving and it was shaking almost like it was going to stall and the check enging light came on. I replaced spark plugs, battery, pvc hose and some gasket that was broken. It seemed okay for the next few months then I started noticing a strong gasoline smell inside the car. It started shaking again and then today when I was backing out of my driveway and stepped on the brakes it didn't stop at first. I thought it was maybe because I have some ice in the driveway so I started down the road and at the stop sign it didn't want to stop again and the pedal was going up and down. That freaked me out. I am wondering if you may know what is going on, because I don't have much money to put into this and I am pregnant and have three other children and am concerned for their safety. Thank you
