Question Cheap CO2 in CT?

I was wondering where you guys get CO2 from. I live near Hartford and would prefer if any location suggested is going to be semi close.
I also am considering purchasing a 2.5lb/5lb CO2 tank and was wondering if you guys have any suggestions on where I may buy them for cheaper.

Iím, too, in CT and donít have any info on local refill places but you can get a 5lb tank for about fifty bucks on Amazon. You might also want to check out for their CO2 kits. Not badly priced.

Look for welding supply stores. There is one in Suffield on Rt 75 and there used to be one in South Windsor on Rt 5 and I think it is still there. A quick google search turned up Praxair and Airgas in Hartford.

I found a company called air They have many branches throughout CT. They mainly do helium but have CO2 listed. They will work with private individuals, not just companies. Worth looking into.
