natural gas pipe strapping

I was cleaning up in the garage and noticed the 3/4 natural gas pipe that runs from the back to the front of the garage(about 18 feet) is only strapped to the wall in the at the ends. I put a strap in the middle. do I need more. I live in Northern California which is as you know is earthquake county. Thanks

i forget the code requirements exactly but when i run gas lines, under a house for example, i put hangers on every third floor joist. that's at least one hanger per 4 feet, so i'd add 2 more straps, at the 1/4 and 3/4" points.
