It could be just about anything, we need more detail. What is your engine/trans, any mods?

Does it run smoothly otherwise, or does it also cough and sputter?

Any recent changes or mods?

Have you done any trouble shooting yet? You need to verify the three main things for an engine, fuel, compression and spark. If any of them are gone or problematic you will get problems.

no accel

4.0 5 speed idle fines but once engaged in gear it is very sluggish like it is getting no gas. at stop can push the pedal and rpm's rev up. but once i get going it is bogged down. now we did have the hurricane here in maryland and it was out in the storm.

yes, sounds like fuel; check your fuel filter and if possible verify your fuel pressure. (im assuming fuel injected)
