NYC cheapeste CO2 refill?

I've been using AWISCO, but it's 30$ for a 5lb tank. I've called around and I can't find anything much cheaper. What do you use?

I'm in Astoria and was looking for a place to fill my tanks too. TechAir on 19th Ave ( told me it would cost $21 to fill my 10# tank, which is a great price. They also told me that if my tank is expired, they will sell me a new one (filled) on the spot for $26. CO2 is filled while you wait. Not sure what the prices for a 5# would be, but obviously it'd be cheaper than $30.

I called them last week and they said their pump is currently out of order but they expect it to be fixed sometime this month. I have a 10# and a 5#, both empty. In the mean time I'm dosing excel while I wait for them to fix their pump. I haven't been able to find another location, but these guys are nearby and prices/procedure are perfect for me.

The TechAir I mentioned is listed as the PRESTO on that directory listing. Pricing has changed too it seems.

I go to Atlantic Gas on Georgia st (or ave.) In Brooklyn and they swap my 5lb tank for $21 in less then 3 mins. Prices did go up some, but I've never had any issues with them.

The grass isn't always greener in the other tank.
