Remember the old saying "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey". Looking down on the knobs, turning clockwise should close the valve. If you want to be sure, assuming the stove top works off those tanks, turn on a stove burner and light it, then close the valve. If the burner doesn't go out try turning the valve completely the other way (counter-clockwise). Of course if the stove works off a different tank nothing will happen either way.

Also, a lot of the valves actually have the words "open/on" and "close/off" stamped on the top of the handles, with corresponding arrows to show you which way to turn.

Yea I forgot to mention it should be written on the knobs. You may also have an indicator on the line. If it shows green you still have gas flowing through the lines, which you can confirm by attempting to light the stove.
