No way to tell from the picture. That could be a capped off gas line, but they are normally going to be 3/4" black pipe, and not enough of it is showing to tell, plus it seems to have paint on it. If not, it's not a big deal to run it there if you have a crawl space under the house. Gas is still cheaper for running a dryer in most areas, and they are a lot faster.

The current laundry setup is for electric only. If you decide on using a gas, you need to set a gas line run to that location. Time to call a pro and get an estimate.

Thanks for your response, one more question: what do you think about electrical outlets? the black one is 240V? the black one is for Dryer and regular one for Washer?

The 240v dryer is usually a 3 or 4 prong outlet. Make sure you know which one it is when you purchase your dryer electric cord. When you buy an electric dryer, it doesn't come with a cord. You will need to buy the correct one based on the outlet you have.
