1999 Toyota Camry Repair Question

1999 Toyota Camry CE
It seems when I have just above a half a tank of gas in the car, the car starts to jerk, almost like the gears are slipping. It continues past half a tank, goes away for a while and returns near empty. When I refill, sometime I put dry gas in and that seems to help until I get to about a half a tank again. What do you think it could be?

You need a fuel pressure test-this will tell you something is wrong within the fuel system.
Possible causes: fuel pump on its way out,clogged in-tank pick-up screen/fuel filter,fuel pressure regulator not maintaining pressure/dirty injectors etc.
