Default Oil pressure dance.

Comin home, 65 on the highway running hot in 4th gear I noticed the oil pressure dropping off. It was dancing around the N and at one point dropped off to zero. No cel.
Grab 5th and lower rpms it went back up back where it usually does and stayed in R, then from the exit and down through town it stayed at the O like normal.
When I revved it sitting still it dropped off again once I hit 3k rpm.
It was raining all day so my initial though it maybe electrical since the oil pressure gauge is less than a gauge, more an idiot light. 6psi and it hits on.
So.. any ideas? I didn't smell any burning or hear anything odd.
I is scuurreedd.
