You have gotten some good advice and I think you're on the right track. You should check/replace the filter first. Real common symptom. After that it almost sounds like your float plunger is sticking and not dropping, not letting the bowl fill with more fuel to keep up with demand, but that's just a WAG. Also, your rig is a 78 so your pickup in the gas tank could be clogged and sucking the strainer against the end of the pickup tube.
