I currently have gas lines in the house for the dryer, water heater, and furnace, but no luck for the stove which is currently electric. The goal is to get a gas stove for the wife. Got a quote to run maybe 8 feet of gas from the existing black iron pipe in the basement to the stove. $1,078. Now that I've picked my jaw up off the floor and kindly ushered the guy out, anyone have any experience with this or whether this is just the price of business? Seemed steep, but I've never had gas work done before.
