    maybe call your gas provider. I would think they should be able to take care of it.

    Take your picture to a business that deals only in appliances. Show them the picture and ask if the people they have install their gas stoves would be able to do the job. From the looks of the pipe it seems to be pretty old, perhaps new is shorter anyway. If they can't do the job, I would check with the gas company, their repair people should know how to do it, or have sub-contractors that can do it.

    Yep. You do need a plumber or someone who knows what their doing. Call Nicor Gas. They can come out and do it or refer one of their contract plumbers. You can also get in touch with your village hall building department and they can refer a plumber that services Hazel Crest. You can also try Home Depot and they can refer plumbers that purchases from them. They have a list of contractors. A lot of plumbers don't respond because there isn't a lot of profit for a small job like that.
