Galvanized pipe is not against the code everywhere. Here it is required if the pipe is outside and optional indoors. The gas company is the only one authorized to adjust the pressure on the regulator before the meter. Contact them.

: There is a shut off valve on the meter. You should know where that is and how to turn it off in case of an emergency. I use a crescent wrench for mine, but any thing that will fit is OK. The valve turns in either direction and there is no stop to tell you off or on. It takes 1/4 turn only. If you continue, the gas will be back on. Now as far a pressure is concerned, contact the gas company. They can measure the pressure and adjust if needed. Please tell me that you do not have galvanized pipes. The pipes should be black iron. Galvanized is totally against code and for good reason. It's pretty easy to tell them apart, galvanized is silver colored and black iron is, you guessed it, black.
