Default idling trouble

when at idle my rpms sink down to almost zero and sometimes it stalls out and sometimes it bounces back to 2000 after stuttering a little bit, its been a little while since i changed the spark plugs, so that might be it. what else could it be and is it expensive to fix. thanks

I ended up replacing my IAC. Cleaning didn't help.
