Hi, only a few weeks back i had the same problem and it gradually got worse. Turns out, my ignition coils had failed. These are usually quite cheap and cost me 100 to replace including the labour. But i think you can get it done cheaper. My car now runs so much smoother. Below is a link on the symptoms of ignition coil failure:

I hope this helps you.
