2005 Dodge Neon Car starts to stall during accelaration

I took the car out to a short drive, put gas in it from our local station, about 20 minutes later I felt a slight hesitation engine check light came on and while I tried to accelerate I had no power however gently touching the pedal I was able to proceed to cruising 55 and get the car home. Once home I checked all possible connections, thinking that a relay may have gotten stuck I disconnected the + battery terminal, jumped back in the car and started it without the check engine light on, took it around the block several times no issues. 1 day later I was headed out 20 minutes into the ride the same issue happened. I pulled over, took the + post off again turned it around and took it to my favorite parts place for a diagnostic test. The tech looked at the car with the computer however since I did not have a check engine light on he was not able to get a code. My wife is out this morning riding around trying to get the same issue to come up then take it to the parts place for a diag. I was wondering if anyone out there has had the same issue especially with taking the + post off the battery and clearing the issue for the moment. I am still thinking it may be a relay however others I have read states it could be the 02 sensor too.
