OIL GAUGE MOVING

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe • V8 2WD Automatic • 1,480,000 miles

2003 tahoe I put 6 quart. And the oil pressure is moving when I accelerate and goes down when I brake. Should the gauge be moving.

It should be moving the oil pressure at idle should be 10-12 psi and @ 2K's rpm -should be about 40psi. Sounds normal to me-
