Default CO2 prices...

Are ridiculous in my town. Called 2 places and so far they both do exchanges and want 75-100 for first 5lb bottle...then 25-30 to refill. WTF.

Airgas here wanted $90 for a full 5lb bottle, that part is not that far off. Although you can buy an empty for much less and just have it filled. And most places here (Chicago) are now charging $20 for 5lb exchange. The place I go to also will refill a 10lb cylinder for $20, 20 lb for $25.

Check out fire extinguisher service shops. I get 5# fills for $10, 10# for $15 and 20# for $20.

Local guy said the fire place goes about 7.50-8.00 for 5lb. So that's cool. Glad I checked around!

My local beer dist charges $7 for a 5lb bottle. You could try welding supply shops too.

Going to call the extinguisher place today. Now just need to order a tank. If I don't buy a keezer set up from a guy that already has a tank.
