2018 Seneca oil pressure

What oil pressure are some of you reading on the dash gauge at idle and at highway speed ?

I'm showing 20psi ("ish" and seems to vary) at idle and around 50psi at highway speed.

I'm trying to understand what is the normal.

Perfect, thank you for the reply.
I'm not getting the power and performance I'd like and couldn't remember what the pressure had been prior times... had just wondered if it was low maybe it was contributing to an underlying problem.

Here is an excerpt from my Freightliner Operator's Manual showing the minimum oil pressure for a Cummins at idle as 15 psi.

Mine shows the same readings as yours with 30,000 miles now.
