Wow nice find! It's $20+ (maybe $23 total?) at Keane Fire Safety in Waltham.

10 Buxs? They just farting into it or something. That is a steal for a 10# fill.

The industrial gas companies around here (north of Atlanta) average about $1.00/pound for an exchange.

I just pulled receipts and stand corrected. The smaller the container the more expensive. 5#=$12.00, 20#=$20.00 and 50#=$30.00. So the 20# is $1.00/pound. I use AirGas and I would guess that their prices are competitive nationwide. Check their location near you before your next refill.

Why would what you use it for affect the cost?

Airgas is actually anti-competitive. They want an arm and a leg for CO2, and they charge for "hazardous materials", etc.

I wasn't aware that something I expel from my lungs every other second was a hazardous material.
