What was this? Fuel starvation?

As I go through the six pack my foot was floored on the gas pedal but you can hear the engine hesitates and there's a crackling sound then the power comes back. The mic was taped to the license plate facing down.

Fuel was showing 3 bars. I had 2 left when I got home and put 6 gallons in, basically filling it. (full 6 bars and the pump was starting to slow. I just didn't let it auto click off) It was 91 degrees today, so pretty toaty.
