RUN down to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" and add to your gas tank per instructions (more is not better). Drive for at least 100 miles and the problem should subsist...providing you haven't been driving it alot with this condition!
Your O2 sensors in the exhaust are fouled...Do NOT go to the dealer for a fix...you'll spend $600 there...and good mechanic should be able to do it for $200 less than a dealer.
Good Luck

My guess would be for some reason the idle air control valve is not working.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the throttle body.
Could be a problem with the memory in the computer, sometimes you have to drive the vehicle for a day or two for the computer to relearn the settings.
Is the check engine light on when you are driving ?
