Airgas sold me a 150 scoff argon tank for around $350. A tank refill will cost about $50.
What’s more, how long does an argon tank last? At a flow rate of 20 – 25 cubic feet per hour, an ordinary industrial argon gas supply tank of roughly 250 cubic feet will last around 10 hours.
Today I chance to drive by a tiny store. On exchange, I was quoted $123 for my own tank. My tank would be shipped out and filled if I chose to keep it. It takes a week to complete.

Why is argon so costly?
Apart from Nitrogen and Oxygen, Argon is the most prevalent gas in the atmosphere. Argon, like helium, is a noble gas, which means it is fully inert. Any other material will not readily react with argon. Argon is several times more costly than Nitrogen since it makes up such a little fraction of the atmosphere.
