    For people with natural gas appliances, sure, go ahead and turn the gas off before you leave. It doesn’t hurt. But the way they work, blowing out the pilot light achieves the same thing. No gas can get to a pilot light unless you physically push the valve knob in, in the Pilot position. That allows you to light the pilot, and begins heating the thermocouple, or the thermopile, depending on the appliance. Heating the thermo generates a small, millivolt current that feeds into the gas valve and opens the valve up, to keep the pilot light lit. Without that current, the gas valve can’t be open, unless you are physically pushing the knob in in the Pilot position. Gas valves are closed when the thermo is cold, and you have to apply current to the electromagnet in them to force them to open, or be pushing the knob in.
