Oil pressure guage

When I start my '99 the oil pressure guage goes right up to a little past center as normal. I have had the car forever, but noticed recently that after driving a little the guage moves back a hair...still at or just past the middle, but it definately moves a little. If I turn the car off and start it right back up it goes back to the original position.

I read the posts and understand that this is a dummy guage, but was wondering if maybe my sending unit is showing early signs of failure or if that is just normal for the guage to drop a hair. Most people probably wouldn't notice and I'm not sure why I did, but I did. Oil level is fine and all of that.
