Low Oil pressure?

So today as I'm driving home I notice my oil pressure gauge (I think that's what it is) is very close to the red lines at idle and only goes up to about 35-60 while driving. My question is, is this normal? Here is a pic.

bad injector body can lead to low oil pressure

I typically see between 30-65 depending on RPMs and If I'm on it or not...Might be alittle different truck from truck but you should be fine.

Alright thanks guys! The truck runs amazing and no white/blue smoke at all so I can only keep praying that my injectors and head gaskets last!

I had the same thing happen to me yesterday. No diesel in my fuel and no smoke. So far from what I've read its normal. Might just need an oil change soon.
