High reving engine on 1987 Honda Accord Hatchback

When I start my car, it revs at about 1800 rpm, then after about 20 seconds it goes up to 2000. If I tap the gas it goes up even higher (2300+) and stays there. I have to turn on my A/C to get it to come down so I can put into drive. While driving, if I ever turn off the A/C it starts reving high again. In fact, at a stop recently, I put the car into neutral and it reved real high and when I put it in drive the car jumped forward and the tires spun out on the gravel. Once in a while it will calm down and go down under 1000 rpm. It never did this before, but its been doing it for the last few days. Any advice?

Is it fuel injected or carbureted? Have you checked for any vacuum leaks? Hondas of this vintage have a zillion vacuum lines.
