For the past month my car has been jolting/jumping
when driving (accelerating &decelerating). The

what it would be?

Also, at first it would happen every so often. Now it happens everytime I drive.

Fuel pump or more like I'm thinking your throttle body is malfunctioning. Check your air filters, MAF sensor (clean it) and clean/inspect your throttle body. If its over 100K miles, then fuel pump or filter may also be a cause (bad gas/clotted filter)
