    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,,,

    Re: The DEFINITIVE Welding Gas Costs Thread.

    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.

    There usually are different prices.

    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.

    Thanks but did you input it into the spreadsheet? The point of this thread is to not have posts by inputing things into the spreadsheet because then things get off topic and then we have 100's of posts with only 10% actual info that people are looking for

    Re: The DEFINITIVE Welding Gas Costs Thread.

    I just swapped a 155 argon ( $66) and a 75 acetylene ($76) , put them in the data base too- seems like not too many entrys for 2022 yet- the cost seemed high but everything is going through the roof. Hard to judge a price increase with inflation raging. Filled up the van, 87 octane was 4.55, diesel is 4.99.

    Good call. Things are changing rapidly now a days. Would be quite useful if everyone doing recent transactions recorded their figures in the spreadsheet.

    I saw an interesting headline yesterday,

    People now earning $15 an hour have less buying power than they did a year ago when earning $7.50 an hour.

    Earning double does nothing when prices have tripled, or more,,,,,,,
    This raising of minimum wage may just bankrupt the country,,,,,,,,,,,

    I put gas price in the survey (not bottle price). I didnít actually buy a bottle but put it in based on a quote.
    April 2022
    124cf $231 for the bottle
    C25 gas $81

    Re: The DEFINITIVE Welding Gas Costs Thread.

    I rent the cylinders as they wonít fill customer cylinders over 80cf around here. $75 per cylinder per year. Just at home I have 6 damn cylinders. Just exchanged a small argon the other day was $78 for the gas and they added a hazardous material fee of $10 almost $90 for a small 155cf argon! I donít know what we are paying at work as they donít put a price on the invoice for a commercial account? Iím biting my tongue on my big 300 cf acetylene cylinder swap price. Iíll post the price next week when I swap it.

    Thanks for your input. Please fill in the survey on the very first page with this exact information so it can be stored in an easy-to-read instead of posting it.
