Here is a previous similar question or two with responses which should help - probably about 70-80% of the cost would be labor, the rest materials. So probably about $150-250 labor and maybe $50-100 materials - this assuming your existing gas line wqhere you are tapping off has the capacity for the gas needed to run the grill. For normal size grill or barbecue, usually no problem at all - but if one of the several thousand $ mother-of-all-grills or a very long run (whcih yours is not) sometimes the line has to run all the way back to the gas meter and tap into there

One specific recommnedation - make sure the line run is not going to accumulate leaves or dirt or water - have it stand off a bit from the siding or deck and it will last a lot longer. Also, if metal pipe (most likely will be 3/4" black iron) it needs to be painted - I use Rustoleum on clean pipe though reguarl house paint usually works fine for many years, or if slightly rusty Rusty metal Primer (which is rusty brown-orangish) which after its VERY long drying period (is fish-oil based so can take weeks to dry fully outdoors - a day or few in shop environment) can then be top-coated with a finish color coat.
