Arrow Clearance between gas and electrical

Sorry to keep asking stupid questions!

Anyone know how much clearance I need from a gas valve to an electrical outlet (behind a range) ?

Thanks again!

No clearance is required.

Call a local inspector

Gas lines and electrical lines near each other is not always a good thing.... call a local inspector as they should be able to answer your questions at no charge.

Once you put enough space between them so that you can operate the valve and use the receptacle without bumping into the other, you'll have plenty of space. Gas valves are only a problem if they leak, and if they do, you'll be dead from the gas before the nearby electrical outlet causes any trouble.
