Vibrations while moving and vibrations while sitting still with the engine on can very easily have 2 different causes. Now if you have vibrations with the engine off- you should probably run because the big one is coming!
Our usual suspect is the passenger side, or front engine mount. Poke around on the rubber part with your finger. If you find soft spots, then the mount has probably lost it's fluid, and that's what is causing your problem.
