In brief: Varies

Several possibilities, but here are some: dehydration, esp in the summer when we can loose more water than we realize.
Medications (lots-best to talk with your doctor). Infections, mainly serious ones. Heart problems. Endocrine problems. Kidney problems. More. For some people a lower BP is normal.Because the list is long and complex, i'd encourage you to have a eval & discussion w/ your doctor.

In brief: Many things

If you have no symptoms then there is no worry.
If you have symptoms you could be going into shock, adrenal insufficiency, dehydration, etc. See your internal medicine doctor.
