My '01 ram 1500 has a rough idle and poor gas mileage. Could it be the EGR valve or possibly something else?

That could be a number of different things. Did you just buy it or have you had it a while? Does it have plenty of power above idle? Has it always had rough idle or did it just start?

Here are some common things to check:

check the vaccum hoses to ensure they are all connected and not cracked

use some fuel injector cleaner spray and clean out the throttle bodies

Check the distributor cap/rotor, wires and plugs especially if it has near 100,000 miles and has never been done before.
