Oil pressure

Recently oil pressure has been a bit on the high side. It usually runs at about 5 bar for a mile or two then settles at 4, dropping to 2.5 in traffic.

But recently it stays at 6 bar for ages and slowly creeps back down to 4.5.

The car now does a fast 80 miles every week day, instead of 5 mile trips it used to. Could this explain it? Should I be worried? Changing the oil and filter hasn't affected it at all.

Nothing to worry about. Engine sounds in great nick. The pressure will be higher when cold (as you know) and would probably rise even higher if the revs are higher from cold.
