Low water pressure in Kitchen Faucet only!!

My home is 10 yrs old. I replaced the faucet about a year and a half ago and everything was fine. Recently about 3 months now, I have very little water pressure coming out of my kitchen faucet. Everything else is fine in my kitchen and the rest of the house. The diswasher, 1/2 bath that is right off my kitchen, washing machine also. I have no idea how this started. I checked my house high and low for leaks and can't find anything. Does this sound like a clogged valve or pvc line or what? Please help. Thanks

Unscrew whatever aerator thingy your faucet sports and try it. Clean the aerator screen.

Sometimes an old shutoff valve washer crumbles away, and journeys through the system 'till it gets stuck someplace.

Thanks, I just checked the aerator and it was clear. I will check the shut off valve because my faucet is a Moen and is fairly new. I will check the guts under the sink next.
