PG&E gas meters have either 4 or 5 dials on them. Each dial moves in opposite directions. To read a meter, stand in front of the meter and reach each dial from RIGHT to LEFT. If the dial is in-between 2 numbers, but is not yet directly ON the higher number, it is read as the lower number. If the hand appears directly on a number, then read that number only. The bottom dials that have no numbers on the gas meter are testing dials. See the example below.
