You're kidding, right? Here in our area R-12 is $1100.00/30# jug. R-134a is $120.00/30# jug. R-12 is a bargain on eBay. It's only $21.00/lb. Still five times what R-134a is locally.
OK maybe not cheaper then r134a but cheaper then r12 from other sources, and there was several people selling skids of it.
I searched eBay and found skids of R-134a...no R-12. Anybody with a chiller that holds more than 300 lbs. of R-12 would be foolish not to convert to R-134a. I'm sure most have done so already.
The largest quantity of R-12 I found on eBay was a 50# jug.
