This just in:
On May 26, I drove the limo to St. Louis to pick up 3 pallets of R507 and R407a refrigerants. The per cylinder cost was in the $95/cyl neighborhood. I had a feeling...
I checked pricing this morning - R507 is $344/cyl, R407a is $367/cyl. That's a 362% increase in R507 and a 386% increase in R407a in a little over 30 days. I've had similar increases across all refrigerants.
The $12,000 worth of gas I bought last month is now over $42,000. We'll see if there's anybody left to buy it after all the dust settles.
Tell me again how we're not deeply and absolutely screwed.
