RPM INCREASE AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS

2003 Dodge Dakota

Transmission problem
2003 Dodge Dakota V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 60,000 miles

What causes the engine rpm's to increase at hwy speeds without depressing the accelerator further?

The rpm's will increase from 2,000 to 2,500 and return
immediately without any pedal movement.

Does the engine rpm increase and the vehicle speed not?
