But the the real kicker is the conductor that runs from somewhere near the top of the panel and the uses the face of the meter as a cord wrap!

This wire is probably for a remote meter reading device, for the gas meter.

Or if the gas service line has been changed at some point outside to non-metallic, it may be a locator wire.

Last year i moved a service in a residence and installed a 4 square box with some gfcis under it for a panel service outlet/convenience outlet. I returned to find the Hot water heater placed Directly in front of the panel and mounted directly over my 4 square box was a disconnect..Now I was peaved but not wanting to make waves I removed said items,and left a 30 amp disconnect on the other side of the wall for the hot water heater. Had the plumber move it and I returned and reconnected the hot water heater. The customer had not moved in yet.....It gets better....The day of inspection I find out From my AHJ....that they order to make room for the hot water heater they moved the washer and dryer...Guess where they put them.......Right in front of my panel... I then proceeded to tape on the floor and mark in Very large angrily scrawled lettering that nothing was to be placed here......Gets even better...I returned to get paid a few weeks later and happened to look down there... placed neatly in front of my panel was YUP The washer and dryer.....Oh well
