A/C causing power loss?

I have a 1998 3.0L and it seems that when I use my A/C it seems to take away much more performance and power from my engine. It also makes it idle higher between shifts or when I have it in neutral. I know the 3.0L doesnt have any power to begin with and A/C sometimes takes a little power away. But mine just seems a little drastic? Any suggestions?

Haha I'd do that more if I didn't have to battle the Texas heat.
