Engine stutter issue

My 2011 has 9000 miles on it and have been noticing over the last 1000 miles that when I am on the hwy it will sometimes stutter for a second or two.
Any ideas? It has fresh oil and good fuel.
Thank you for your comments.

Throw in some Sea Foam and see if that cleans it up.

Thank you for your comments.

Air filter clean? If so not over oiled?

My '07 developed a similar problem recently and was fixed by a can of Dust-Off (you know the compressed air in a can thing) sprayed down the tank vent tube under my gas cap. My next step would have been Seafoam also.

Sea foam? I will look it up.

Air filter is cleaned but will also check over oiled.
Thank you.
