There is probably someplace closer to you, but Middlesex Gas in Plainville MA has them.

You might also look for a homebrew shop, as they sometimes carry them also.

Cranston welding supply. I'm gonna call around just to check on pricing. But new bottle filled for $93 and then they just swap it out whenever its empty.

IIRC I was at a bit over 120 for my initial purchase/fill. Exchanges are quick and painless and about 20 bucks.

I go down to my local gun shop where my buddy works and he charges me $10 to fill. He's only able to get it to 3.5 pounds though.
