i've read it should be around 80 psi. this is the first time i've had a gauge on the water line and it seems i've got about 120 psi on the city side.

unusually high? high, but ok?

Calculate the differential water pressure of 2 residences 200 feet difference in elevation using a water tower supply with 27.28 inches being equal to 1 lb. and you may see why that high municipal water pressure needs to be that high in that area.
