Not sure what's available in your area but Tractor Supply and Northern tool has them about as cheap as I have found, here anyway. If you have already talked to the local gas supplier then you are fairly close to what one is going to cost unless you can find one from a private source. If you do locate one from somewhere besides a dealer then be SURE the inspection date is not expired no matter how good the bottle looks. No one will fill a bottle that has expired until it has been retested and if you have to have that done you would probably be better off to just buy a new one. BTW you will not regret changing to MIG operation and using the gas, Argon/CO2 if you are welding steel.
