They may be resting, or they simply may need to be pinched back. Pinching back the growing tips of each of the stems will force new, and hopefully flowering, stems. Be careful about fertilizer, too. An overdose of nitrogen can encourage lots of new growth but at the expense of flowers. Best wishes with your petunias.
