Outdoor electrical outlet restrictions? (next to gas line? height?)

Hopefully this is some of the last questions I need to ask ...

I'm getting an above-ground pool installed and had a natural gas line installed at the back of the house. I'd like to place the pool outlets next to the natural gas line.

1) How far does an electrical outlet need to be from a gas line (as shown below) ?

2) How far do two outlets need to be from each other? (I need two outlets, each on different circuits for pool equipment)

Ideally I want to have the following:

2 outlets to the left of gas line. (separate boxes, outlets next to each other a few inches apart)
1 outlet will have timer installed in separate box above outlet plus an emergency shutoff switch above that.

For some reason you chose not to put in your location in your profile so it's any ones guess what your local codes are.
Even then it does not matter what anyone on the net says on code issues, you need to be asking these questions to the local building dept.
