When accelerating, my car will not pick up and go, but slowly accelerate.

Also, at around 55 mph, I will have my gas pedal steady or even using my cruise control.. but the RPM's will drop from around 2,000 down to 1,500. I will let off the gas and it will jump back up to 2,000 RPM's. Has anyone ever experienced something like this?? It was idling around 3,500 to 4,000 RPM until we changed the spark plugs and now it idles fine. Please let me know if you have any other questions about the car for diagnostic purposes!!!
Is it consistently the same cylinder that's misfiring or more than one? What plugs did you put in?
