Default Stiff Gas Pedal

I have an 05 XLT with the 2.3L Duratec, with a 5speed, and the last 3-4 weeks I've noticed that when I'm in 5th gear, and I guess you'd say "crusing speed" more or less, that when I take my foot off the gas and push back down that it seems to stick a little bit... In all other gears I can't tell any stiffness but only in 5th...

If I don't release the gas completely it won't do this, but if I release the gas all the way to slow down and then give it gas again is when it seems to either be "sticky"

Take off the intake hose, and clean the throttle body with carb cleaner and a rag. Mine does this from time to time, usually when the weather turns colder, and cleaning seems to help it. And don't worry about cleaning it, our throttles aren't coated like some.
