Low water pressure?

Just today our water pressure has dropped significantly. We are on city water, not well. I checked with our next door neighbor and he isn't experiencing any drop in pressure. Any ideas what this could be? My first thought was a busted pipe somewhere but, luckily, I can't find one...not inside at least. Should a plumber be called? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

Turn the main water valve off at your home and check the leak indicator on your water meter. It probably is a small triangle or gauge.
If either is moving, you may have a leak between the meter and your home, or your main valve is leaking.
The other possiblilty is that you have a Pressure Reducing Valve after the meter that needs re-adjusting or replacing.
Good Luck!
