Depends on the grade of oil you use and the condition of the engine.

Mine runs in the same place. I use a 20w-50 oil.
A 15w-40 will lower the oil pressure.

But don't worry about it these gauges are not known for their accuracy.

Mitch if it changes when drive up a hill I would be putting some oil in it.
This should not happen!!
Oil pressure depends on many things, oil age, oil temp, RPM, oil viscosity, filter age, oil regulator spring tension and oil releif valve spring tension.
