Sometimes the car is hard to start and seems to lose power when the outside temp is hot and the car is warm. The hard starting problem seems to be getting gradually worse. Is this a fuel problem or electrical. Car seems to run good otherwise.

Do you

Have the Mass air flow sensor checked because it is an easy check. If no debri or build up is found on the hot film wires then is sound like an electrical issue. If there is build up then clean the sensor with an aerosol spray that is designed to clean mass air flow sensors. If this does not help then you may just need a professional to diagnose it.
