Gas pipes

I'm moving some gas appliances in my house and need to run several new lengths of pipe. All the existing work is in galvanized steel, but I understand the standard is now black iron. Can I mix and match the two? Is there any good reason not to keep using galvanized, i.e. should i back up all the way to the meter and redo it all with iron?

You can also mix the two, and the black is cheaper, so I would go with it... The galvanized is more resistant to moisture of course, but for interior purposes, I wouldn't worry about using it...
