comment How to tell if there is poor water pressure before my main shut-off valve?
@bfodder DMoore is basing his answer on he things are in his area. The fact is, setups can vary wildly from place to place. It's very common for the main shutoff to be immediate after the water meter. Find the meter, and see if there is a valve near it.

comment How can I figure out why my water pressure is basically zero?
@bfodder The pipe that runs through the neighborhood is called a "main". The pipe that branches off the main and runs to your house is called a "service", "supply", or "branch" pipe. The pipe inside your house could be known as a "trunk", from which "branches" split out to the fixtures.

@bfodder low pressure at the hose bibs does not guarantee the problem is outside the hose.

@bfodder A hose bib (aka spigot) is the fixture on the outside of the house where you connect a garden hose. They usually consist of a valve to control the flow of water, and a threaded opening where a hose can be attached. It's common for the plumbing to split out to these fixtures first (since they're closest to ground level), in a trunk and branch configuration.

Good advice to check the water meter. If you're not using water, and the meter is spinning, you've got a leak.

A photo of the vent covers might be useful, since there are many available and we don't know what type you have.
