2000 Jeep Wrangler Oil Gauge Needle Fluctuating

When I press on the gas the oil gauge needle moves. Is this normal? If not, what is wrong?

YES

You should expect the oil pressure gauge to increase some as you go from idle to higher RPM,s unless of course it is jumping all over then you could be nearly out of oil or the pump is going bad.
