    Owning usually means you're saving money in under 10 years vs even a good rental rate.

    If you need to upgrade, a good LWS will give you credit towards your new tank for what you paid for your old one. But, steel going up means you can probably sell it to someone and make money instead.

    Angry Stop your griping!!!!!!!!!!!!

    All you guys mad about what you pay for the price of Argon, this is what we pay here (just called the LWS) JUST FOR GAS ALONE!

    80CF...$117.38
    300CF...$356.54

    Same answer whenever asked: "Well, we had to ship it over here...."
    This is what we pay to live in paradise. If we don't like it, yeah, we could leave. We just deal with it. It's been around 85 degrees the past 30 days, winds 10-15mph.
    Oh well.....
