Whining/weezing sound but only when accelerator is presse and car is moving.

I have a 2008 Honda Fit with 150K miles with the problem described below. It's going into the shop tomorrow but meanwhile I thought I'd throw it out here to get opinions. This has been going on for a few weeks now.

There is a higher pitched whining/wheezing sound that may vaguely remind you of a subdued jet engine. It is not screaming loud but very noticeable. It appears to be emanating from somewhere towards the front of the car with the following characteristics
• Only occurs when car is in drive and moving with the accelerator pressed. When the accelerator is released, the sound either entirely or mostly ceases to exist
• Will not occur when car is stopped and in park or neutral and accelerator is pressed.
• Mostly prevalent when traveling at moderate (30-50 mph) speeds and macerator is pressed. A good example is acerbating hard when entering the on ramp to an interstate. Less apparent when traveling a low speeds and at faster highway speeds (perhaps road noise drowns it out).
• Sometimes the sound is more prevalent then at mother times, perhaps getting worse as the car is warmed up and on the road for a few minutes.
• No apparent loss of power and car seems to still shift smoothly.
• “Maybe a whiff of gas or some other fluid once in awhile?
Car is overdue for 30K service if that has anything to do with it.
