$5 a LB for CO2??
 
Is this right? Or do I need to grab another brew and sitthe****backdown?

My local welding shop told me that it would be around $25 to fill my lowly 5# CO2 tank with compressed exhaled breath.

I guess I am new to the kegging realm, but that seems a bit steep for such a small tank.

Definitely sounds steep. I got mine filled for $14, another place was $16 to trade and the most expensive was $19.

You get grease with that?

my LHBS charges $2 a pound, and the welding shop fills a 5# tank for $8.
I'd tell him You'll pay $25 if it comes with a full corny!

I don't even pay $25 to fill a 20# tank. Time to shop around!

maybe that guy saw you on tv and though you were good for the money. maybe you announced something that he wanted he hear. He didnt know you really werent that happy with your marriage and were only sticking around for the kid. A little co2 to pad his wallet didn;t seem like a bad idea, i mean, you werent the one kicking anyones ass right? how does the old saying go, if you can;t do, teach. is it not the same for announcers? if you can;t do, announce? maybe he had your number? expensive air followed by expensive adivice.

My last 2 fills were:

5 lb - $10 at a beer distributer
20 lb - $15 at a welding / gas supply shop

Ya, I pay $2 per # at the local fire extinguisher place. The most expensive place around here is $20 for a 5# tank.

$8.50 for 5# here...

+1. Those places are generally cheapest.
