Low fuel pressure

I have an 89 YJ with 4.2 258i and stock fuel system. I have recently replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter. I recently checked the fuel pressure and found it to be between 1 and 2 psi. This seems very low. What is the fuel pressure suppose to be? What could be causing this?

did you get that on the rail at the schrader(sp) valve? if so, yes, that's low...heck that's low at the carb.
