Excuse me, but I can't comprehend why you would have a gas meter on an interior wall and exposed? Can you please explain? I'm not being facetious, I just can't comprehend!
I was also incredulous at an indoor gas meter. I did, however, find a site that shows interior gas meters do occur, but require special permission from the gas company. https://inspectapedia.com/plumbing/Gas_Meters.php The fact that you have one and it appears to be quite new (shiny copper) suggests you just had it added. Covering up the line seems like a simple fix, but it's really not a good idea. Suppose you cover the line with a cabinet or trim that has a cutout in the back for the pipe to run in. No one can see the gas pipe. At some point someone decides to put in a nail or screw and you have a gas leak.
There is a reason for typical places that pipes and electric are run. Primarily it prevents one group of sub-contractors from messing up another group's work. It may look common for someone else, but this pipe is not in any usual position I've ever seen. Katie's suggestion seems the most prudent.
