Depends on plumbing of course - if the ceiling fixtures all come off one pipe teed off the pipe leading to the floor appliances, and that point is exposed in basement or crawlspace or attic or garage or such as is usual, then minimum service call charge of typically $75-150 plus about $5-8 materials would handle that - and also safest because you would not be leaving a bunch of active gas pipe in the wall and ceiling.

If the connection point is in the walls, or the ceiling pipe is an extension of the floor one so it takes opening up a wall or downstairs ceiling to access it, then probably more like $125-200 for the plumber, plus probably more than that for a Handyman to repair the access point hole and repaint.

To cap off in the ceiling, individually for each feed, is probably not viable because to hold the pipe while a cap is screwed onto it means a healthy hole in the ceiling - cutting the pipe back to clear a drywall patch in the ceiling would be WAYYY bigger hole to get a pipe threader onto it - so that would be a last resort. Ditto but a bit smaller hole to cut back and cap copper pipe - but still a 6 inch hole or such at least. This assuming black iron or copper 1/2" or 3/4" pipe feed - if flex tubing feed then capping that and pushing it up into the ceiling would be simpler if flex, though not sure if leaving a concealed line like that active in the ceiling is legal.
