My car is about to turn 70,000 miles.  What should my oil pressure be at?  I think it just jumped to 130.

That sounds really high. Typically oil pressures seem to range from about 40 at idle to about 80-90 at high RPM/under load. Have this checked out. Might be as simple as your oil pressure sending unit is shot.
