C02 prices going up?

In stead of the usual 10 and some change for a refill of a 5lber. I paid 13.xx. Spoke to the guy and he said one of the main plants that liquifies the c02 is down temporally. Prices are expected to climb. Got my gas in Hartford area.

I filled my 5# a week ago and it cost 14.50, which is the same as it always is. My 20oz paintball canister is still 3.50 to fill.

Around here, Airgas charges $28 for a 10lb exchange. I recall it being $16 not too long ago.
