Oil sending unit

(1990 Ford Ranger)
in Booneville, MS on September 04, 2010
My oil pressure guage goes up fine when I start out but then drops when I slow down and as I drive longer it goes down and stays there. Is this due to the oil sending unit or oil pump and where are these located on this engine?
