Pressurized CO2 Question

How much does it usually cost for you guys to fill your CO2 tanks? I asked a welding place for a 5lb cylinder and they quoted me $30...

That would be extremely high even here in Portland which pretty much has the highest CO2 prices I have seen.

co2 30$

$30 dollars for co2 is high for 5 lb around 5 to 15 dollars max.
5lb of co2 with argon mixture is right at $30 dollars which is used for welding.make sure there selling you pure co2.
