Bad Fuel Pump Relay?

The climate control is on econ. Radio is okay. The clicking I hear is
so evidently related to the miss and surge it's hard to confuse it with
anything else. I suppose it's possible I'm hearing the relay from under
the hood but I doubt it.
Maybe I'll remove the panel and drive around and see if it all becomes
a bit more clear. Easier to isolate the failing relay maybe.
Anything else in that inside relay panel that might cause a stumble
like that? It does feel like a fuel problem for whatever that's worth.
