To me it sounds like you are definately having a transmission problem. I am only familiar with manual transmissions, but this problem definately seems to match exactly to what is known as clutch slip. If you are driving a manual transmission all that this means is that your only choice is to replace the clutch. This may be the case with automatic transmissions as well but I am not very familiar with those.
