Smile hesitation when hitting gas pedal

Forgive me - I am not car smart by any means - I have a 2008 jeep compass - lately when I hit the gas it hesitates - don't know any other way to describe it - going for an oil change tomorrow and my brother suggested a new gas filter - any other ideas?

Check you air filter first if its not been changed. Millage makes a difference. I could be a lot of things.

I'd also recommend getting some fuel injector cleaner ($5 at Autozone). I know that my 07' Compass has had problems like this in the past, and this seemed to help for me.
