Indiana guys, where are you getting your welding gases at?

I am west of Indy, and have been renting my oxygen and acetylene tanks from WSI in Ft. Wayne through one of their dealers in Hendricks County. I am only paying $13 a month for both tanks, and had to pay for the contents up front. I need a tank for my new MIG welder, and I am having a hard time making contact with my dealer. I know he works a full time job, and has a family, but you would think after 5 phone calls and 3 messages, a guy would call you back.

I am looking for a new vendor, but the few companies that I have talked to (Tractor Supply, a few local shops) want me to buy the tank, OR, they want me to pay for contents and 5 year tank lease up front. I would rather do it like I have been because it is easier on the wallet (and figured into the budget) to spend $13 a month on tank rental.

I know this is somewhat out of this forum's intended purpose, but I couldn't think of a better place to ask. If I were to ask this in tools or chit-chat, there would be 1000+1 people telling me how they score their tanks for free from their sister in law's cousin that lives in Temple Texas.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for that. I am actually local to Indy, but I will give Airgas Indy a call. I just tried, but like usual, day late and dollar short. They are closed. I'll hit them up Monday.
