Here is a similar question which might also help, though perhaps not directly applicable:

If you mean a gas distribution line within the house, if plastic tubing would be easier than with say 3/4" black iron but both are readily doable. If in a wall or ceiling, probably about $50-75 materials and $150-300 labor in most areas, except in a few extreme high-cost areas. Plus the hundred or two for a Handyman to repair and repaint the drywall opening or two required to do the work. This assumes the pipe is not encapsulated in framing which has to be cut and repaired to do the repiping - though in that case just rerunning that section elsewhere might be the preferred solution.

If you mean an exterior exposed metal pipe mounted on the side of the house, ditto to above without the repair work, and most commonly toward the lower half of the labor cost.

If you mean the incoming service line and gas meter - about the above without the repair work to relocate the interior line that comes off the meter, plus whatever the utility charges to do the incoming line and meter relocation - which can be as low as about $250 but sometimes pushing $500-1000 with some utilities. Generally, they require the interior piping work be completed and pass inspection first, THEN they move the meter to hook up to it and turn the gas back on.
