Is the electrical wire allowed to share stud holes with the yellow flexible gas line that goes to the fireplace.
Do i need to drill different set of holes throught the studs for the electrical wire?

Thank You

I would tend to say "YES".

For lack of a valid NEC article, I would say "it's a good practice" to stay away from gas lines.
