SOURCE: car stalls when i press the gas

That is caused by the fuel not being able to burn properly. There are several reasons for this but first thing to check is the spark plugs.

SOURCE: 1989 Cutlass Ciera. Got gas about 30 minutes prior

You may have gotten some condensational moisture in your gas. It collects on the insides of tanks when high humidity occures. The easiest way to rid your tank of water is to put in a bottle of alcohol (91%.) This will disperse the water, and as a consequence increase your octane level a bit. It will never harm your engine or fuel system. Do this first, and wait an hour. Charge your battery if it is low, as you are going to have to push all the contaminated gas through the fuel system before it can start. Try a gasoline with 10% ethenol (alcohol), it rarely if ever has water present.

Possibly blocked fuel filter, when you press the pedal it starves the engine or fuel causing it to cut out. Only a few quid for a fuel filter so I'd start there

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies

I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?
