That is your oil pressure gauge, and sometimes will move up and down on an older higher mileage engine. As long as you have pressure and it's running well, I wouldn't worry too much. How many miles do you have on the engine?

When you accelerate, the oil pressure goes up- at a light and idling, the oil pressure goes down-
