Anyone been getting accelerating issues in north Burnaby area from bad gasoline?

I have 2 vehicles that around 2-3 weeks they delevopped accelerating issues. Basically it would have a stutter like you've let go of the gas for a sec and then stepped on it. I gassed up and it seems like the issue kinda resolved themselves on both vehicles. Eventually getting better/normal again.
My guess is that there was contaminated fuel in one of the gas stations but I'm not exactly sure which gas stations it would be from and which to avoid as this issue is very recent and I wasn't keeping track.
Just wanted to check.

how many ppl drive the cars?
and might i add.. petro itself pretty much comes from the same place. and if u like to point fingers.. it would be the additives the gas station company puts in there
reason why i asked how many ppl drive is cuz maybe you and the other driver have different habits and the computer takes notes and i guess u can say it wants to be a step ahead
in this case u would be the heavy foot driver

There are many factors in decrease of performance during acceleration, not only from "bad" gasoline.
