Cruising oil temperature?

What oil temps are you seeing while cruising at highway speeds with outside temps in the 50-70 degree range?
Our 2014 SS L99 runs 203 degree coolant temps and 223-225 degree oil temps while cruising.
Search didn't turn up much. Thanks.

My V6 runs about the same. Coolant temp spiked up to about 215 in stop and go driving, but the gauge stayed under the 1/2 mark...

On a quick run today ... I thought I looked and saw about 210 ... it was only about 10 miles when I looked, so not sure how helpful that is (or how close I looked)

I just double checked my oil temps last night on the ride home.

Outside temp: 90F
Stop and Go Traffic: 225F - 235F
Cruising 70-80 mph: 210F - 215F

I will check the coolant temps tonight, as the outside temp will be about the same.

I looked at mine again on a little longer drive ... was just a little bit above the 210 line, so I'm guessing 215ish
