FEELS LIKE GAS CUTS OUT...

Engine Performance problem
1987 Peugeot 505 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 107000 miles

I have a peugeot 505 stx. It has a 6 cyl fuel injected engine. The past few days when I have been driving it all of a sudden it will feel like the gas cuts out. The rpms stay the same but it wont accelerate any further it usually does it between 1900-2200 rpms. It feels something like when you hit the max mph for the governor to kick in. But it happens at any speed for me. I can hear what I believe is my fuel pump and or filter making a buzzing sound. It has always made the sound since I purchased the car. I was thinking it may be my fuel filter that's causing my car to do this. Is that a possibility? What are all the possibilities? Thanks for your time!

Replace the fuel filter and add a good fuel injector cleaner to the tank
