    Re: The DEFINITIVE Welding Gas Costs Thread.

    Thanks for starting this,, whenever that was,,,

    I went to several welding supplies,, and I was shocked at the variation in pricing,,
    I asked about 80 Cu Ft argon, and 80 Cu Ft 75-25 as I have those two tanks
    I was quoted between $27 and $58 for each tank,, I did ask one place about filling my CO2 tank,, that was $25,,
    I forgot to ask the other places about the CO2,,
    I will enter data when I do get the tanks filled,,,

    I went today to swap my (owned) 125 argon at Airgas. The guy rang me up and said that will be $78. Huh? I asked if the price went up, I got a refill just two weeks ago and it was $61. He checked again, and said "ya, its $61". Makes me wonder if there are different price lists.

    I entered it in the survey, the prices sure are all over the board.

    It's called tiered pricing. Sucks if you aren't a bulk/big buyer.

    Over the years I have talked to the guys at the big and small liquid carbonic plants and they pretty much told me to get the big tanks because they do not care about the gas as much as the aggravation and handling of the tanks. The smaller tanks pose problems for transporting and the large refillers charge the smaller distributors almost the same price whether it is small or large.

    Oh there definitely is different price list. Cash is 3 times a account holder price.

    You are still getting robbed. 125 argon should be about $28 out the door price.

    I'm envious as all hell of how cheap gas is in the states.

    Here in Australia we get robbed blind since there is a duopoly for gas supply, BOC and supagas.

    A 120 CuF of argon is $159 just for the gas here, same size of Co2 is $120.
