Doesn't run properley at a steady speed

(1994 Ford Escort)
in Pine City, MN on April 04, 2009
3rd gear is the worst. At about 30 miles per hour it wants to chug and jerks. Accelerating is just fine. It doesn't hesitate. But at a constant speed it doesn't want to run properly. And it only gets 25 to maybe 30 miles per gallon. I changed air and fuel filter and all the spark plugs.

I would check your ignition wires, cap and rotor for wear.
