Fuel Pressure Gauge Erratic

This morning my fuel pressure gauge started acting crazy. Its bouncing around erratically when i'm driving down the road. Hopefully the attached video gives you an idea. The truck seems to run fine, no issues on the edge or trouble codes.

Interesting, please pass along what they tell you. I double checked all the wiring and it seems good. It makes me nervous about driving it with the needle dancing like that. It would kind of defeat the purpose of the gauge if I ignored it. Does anyone know of an engine problem that could cause a fuel pressure gauge to move like that, or is it likely a broken sending unit or gauge? When I think about a fuel pressure problem I would expect either contant low or high pressure not these intense fluctuations.
