Default Idle Drop

Hey does anyone else have this problem? Ever since I had the truck and that been since it had just under 8k on it, sometimes the idle will drop when I slow down or come to a stop. It has only stalled out once like this but the idle bounces around alot. I cleaned out the tb and stuff but cant figure anything out on it. Anyone have any ideas?

I agree with trx4, there might be water in the gas.
