Default Oil pressure gauge

noticed today when I shut my car off that all the gauges go to zero except the oil pressure gauge. It stayed around 30 psi. When I started car it went to 40psi. Is this normal or does my gauge need attention?

Pretty sure mine goes back to zero. I will check it today and report back.

What year is the car? My '98 retains temp, oil pressure, and fuel level readings from the last engine run event - but I recall that some or all of this info wasn't retained by my '99, '00 or '02 cars. The cluster was updated for '99+, so you'll want to know model year data for any comparisons.
