Look at Home Depot as well as some farm stores. The HD in north Texas has pure Argon, Argon-CO2 mix and acetylene bottles, already filled, for sale.

Whoever supplies the welding gasses will be have new bottles and gas to refill them with.

If you cannot get gas from the place you purchase the welder, maybe you might reconsider your purchase.
The cost of the welder may be a bit more but if you deal with a supplier that supplies to the trade, you can be assured of easy access to replacent parts, advice and consumeables.

Indiana Oxygen has their main location in Indianapolis. I just bought a Millermatic DVI and a bunch of other stuff from their branch office here in Cincinnati (Cleves). Great to work with, good prices, too.

To answer your question, They will sell you an 80 cf tank for $135. Fill it with argon for $24. You own the tank, no lease. When you take it back for a refill, they swap your empty for a pre-filled one. No waiting.

I stopped in yesterday to talk about an aluminum wire spool gun and they talked me into a CHEAPER solution.

If you are welding steel you want C25 or possibly CO2. my choice would be C25
