    I would look at your distributor and your alternator.

    I 2nd that. Run a test on the alternator. If you have a voltmeter, with the car on, connect the leads to your battery terminals. You should reading anywhere between 13.5-14.5 volts. anything under 12.8ish is bad. Check battery terminals, make sure tight & clean. Inspect alternator belt for tightness & wear.
