Why do I have low oil pressure? And how can I be sure what is the problem

While idling the gauge is about 20, and my truck seems 2 be running rough

You may have bearings that are about worn out and will need replacing soon As your engine heats up the metal expands and creates bigger openings and at the same tome the oil heats up and thins out causing it to flow faster/ GM is famous for leaving things looser in their engines. They like high volume and low oil pressure systems
