Sounds like a vapor lock in the fuel line. If the fuel line is a hose, then in summer time, the line , if it is old, will collapse due to vapor lock. This will cause the problem you are describing.

I would forget the vapor lock theory. It ran okey for years,so why not now
Vapor lock goes back 35 years to carburators and road race cars.

What tests were done to warrant O2 Sensors?
Did you have any overheating issues,or just thinking so?
Don't overlook an old and partially blocked converter. You haven't said what your drivability issues, really are!
Fuel systems aren't really to heat sensitive or know when summer is here.

Tape a fuel pressure gauge to windshield and go for a drive.
