The cheapest 5lb tank I found was $155 filled brand new with 10 year warranty, and they charge $30 to refill. I live in Canada so this is in CDN currency.
Ok, I can't tell you the exchange with CDN Currency, but I have the paintball canisters and I've actually filled about 15 2L with it before I got a keg. That same one is hooked up to the keg now and carbed it rather well, and is still going like a champ. I didn't refill it between the bottles and keg.

For my area, refills at the local sports shop runs around $4 US.

I used to carb 500ml and 1liter bottles and it lasted awhile. I thought I read that a 20 ounce tank will carb and push 1.5 corny kegs of beer around 12psi. Or 1 keg of water around 25psi and push. So the above statement that it did 15, 2 liter bottles would holds true.
20 ounce tank should do around,
1, keg around 25psi,
15, 2 liter bottles,
30, 1 liter bottles,
60, 500ml bottles,
120, cups.
