Loss of power

I can think of two possibilities.
1) The air mass meter could be defective, or covered in dirt, and not providing the right fuel mix under a load heavier than normal driving.
2) The monolith in the Cat may be breaking up and blocking the exhaust system, which would again be more noticeable under load.
Both possibilities are usually accompanied by reduced acceleration and a drop in performance but when the problem starts these things may not be detectable.

Sounds like the fuel filter. It would indicate the correct pressure at idle or maybe even revving. Once the engine is put under a load (highway speeds) it begins to choke. Try replacing the fuel filter.

2004 Grand Am acts like it's out of gas when it's not.

It almost sounds like you are losing spark at times, and not fuel. i guess the cheapest place to start is to change plugs and wires. Pay close attention to the gap on the plugs. Another thing could be the idle air control valve, or water in your fuel.

Engine power seem a miss when demand is needed

check your fuel pressure good chance that there is enough fuel getting there under light load but not enough under heavy load it should not drop below 45 pounds at WOT ( wide open throttle ) while driving under a load if it drops to low good place to start at the pick up screen in the tank or the pump itself
