The vent is controlled by vacuum. Check the condition of the vacuum hose associated with the vent control. What is happening is when you decelerate, the intake manifold vacuum increases, and a diaphram is slightly pulled giving you air in the vent but very little. In normal condition the diaphram wont even pull. Solution is check for a vacuum leak in the vent control trace it coming from the intake manifold.

Have a 2000 Lumina. Air vents do not blow air when accelerating. When you let up on the gas it will blow, but not as much as it normally does. When driving it tends to come and go. The defrost and floor...

Sounds like you have trash/debris in the vents or your A/C evaporator is clogged with dirt.
Clean everything out and it should be okay. While doing that check for loose parts like flapper doors etc.
A vacuum cleaner with a flex rubber snouts helps.
