Oil Pressure concern/question

I think my oil pressure runs low... so I am running Motocraft 5W30 synthetic blend with a Motorcraft filter. Assuming the gauge numbers are right it runs about 52-70psi cold under load depending on temperature, at hwy speed (at temperature being close to 200) seems to be about 18-20psi first mark, at idle about 9 psi (at temp). I added a pic so you can see where on the gauge I am talking about.

I am curious of what pressures you guys are seeing?
