4th gear stutter question

My car has developed an intermittent stutter when I'm just lugging along in 4th gear on the highway. Drop 3rd and it's as if nothing happened. Hit 4th again, stutter.

I suspect a possible boost or vacuum leak maybe? I've not yet peeked around, starting first with your brains 8-). Either that or it feels like it's getting too much fuel at that rpm / gear maybe? I'm no rocket scientist tho...

No smoke or other symptoms. Runs 100% awesome the rest of the time. Started doing it out of nowhere - actually - after sitting 2wks while I was beaching it. But I've run new a new tank of fuel thru it since. Only happens once in awhile.

Any insight appreciated, thanks!
