Gas gas line install

I ran 70ft of 1" galvanized pipe.
I performed an 15# pressure test overnight and the pressure did not drop. . I decided to let it go another day and it dropped 1 pound. Should i be concerned?

    Make sure you're not just seeing a slight drop from ambient temp changes. Watch it longer to get a baseline.

    15# ? I know some inspectors here in H that will fail you for that high. Standard is 3psi.

    I thought the same thing. Galvanized wouldn't fly in my area.
