Default Stutter

Every once in a while while at highway speeds, boh with and without cruise control on, the car kinda stumbles, like a hiccup. I've tried the usual plugs and wires, still there.
Also my mileage is especially crappy lately. Any ideas?

Does it idle smooth? Double-check the wire connections - both ends - I had to really push to get them to seat.
You could also have an intake leak at the intake gaskets - but that USUALLY means a poor idle.
