Yes, take it in to a shop that can remove the oil pressure sending unit and temporarily replace it with a mechanical gage. Then they can take some actual pressure readings and compare them to specifications. If you are lucky, it may only be a bad sending unit, however your car does have a lot of miles on it. If the oil pressure is low that can be a bad oil pump or bad engine bearings.

Good luck.
