Can electrical wire run next to gas line?

In respect to this, can you run plumbing and electrical through the same hole?
Plumbing and electrical in the same wall cavity are fine, even if they do touch. Remember, all electrical is insulated. Bare ground wires are OK too.
What is nm b wire?
NMB stands for Non-Metallic because it has a PVC jacket instead of a metal clad jacket. It is a basic indoor electrical wire used to deliver power from an electrical box to lights, outlets and appliances.
