Could be a dirty throttle body and/or clogged flame trap.

could a clogged flam trap also give me poor gas mileage and a rich condition?

well it can do alot more then that, it can blow out your rear engine main seal, your head seal, etc. to me this is sounding like there might be a leak in the vaccum system. check all your hoses for cracks, there may be a leaky culprit
