These symptoms might be the cause of a few problems. 1. Clogged fuel filter. For this model of car, they run about $25 and are really easy to install since the filter is not an inline filter. 2. Your fuel pump is going. This is the least likely to be the problem. 3. Your EGA valves are clogged and need to be cleaned and/or replaced. If your Civic is under 150k miles, the fuel system is still under warranty and all repairs should be covered by Honda. The fuel filter you can easily replace yourself, but it's recommended that a certified mechanic clean the EGA valves. The whole process will take about 2-4 hours depending on how dirty they are.
