When idle is erratic, possible causes are :

Vacuum leaks.
EGR system fault.
Ensure proper spark exists from ignition system.
Ensure ignition timing is correct.
Ensure fuel system performs properly (fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injector and fuel pressure regulator).
Check engine compression, valve clearance, valve timing and timing belt (if equipped).
Check airflow meter or MAP sensor and wiring.
Check Engine Control Module (ECM) and wiring.
Ensure dipstick and oil filler cap are properly seated.

If you are operating the A/C when it happens, it is possible the idle drop happens when the A/C compressor cuts in. This indicates the idle air controls and passages could be partially clogged resulting in the delay in ECM control to bring up the idle speed. Cleaning the throttle body and IAC should solve the problem.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

    The idle speed control valve can cause idle problems, it's located on
    the throttle body, the throttle body has to be removed from the intake
    chamber then the ISC valve can be removed and cleaned with a spray
    throttle body cleaner at the same time clean the throttle body
    thouroughly on the inside, use the spray cleaner and a bruch to remove
    all the carbon, re assemble everything and it should fix the problem.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate

Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. When the engine is cold the leak is there but as the engine warms up the parts start to expand thus closing the gaps and sealing the leak. I had this problem on my personal vehicle and it turned out to be lower intake gaskets.
