Air, fuel or spark, one is ALWAYS the problem. Dirty air filter? Dirty fuel filter or faultering fuel pump? Spark may be the issue, not the alternator of battery. Any engine codes? If it were the coils, you'd have them. Many miles on it? Ever tune-it-up?

The car has 74k miles on it and I haven't had a tune-up and several years. I drove the car on the highway for about 30 mins and didn't have any problems. No engine codes or any other warning lights.

check your air filter, if dirty replace it. check your spark plugs and replace if needed. check your fuel filter by your injectors, replace if needed. check your pcv replace if needed.
