Freon is a Dupont trade name for a line of HCFC (Hydrochloroflourocarbon) refrigerants. there is Freon 114, Freon 12 (R-12), Freon 500, Freon 22 (R-22) and Freon 502.. Suva is Dupont's line for HFC's (Hydroflourocarbon) like Suva 134a (R-134a).
so neither of you were correct.

Now we know the proper name and definition the question still remains WHY is the price going up? I did hear rumor of a fire at one of the plants but its not confirmed.

For the same reason everything goes up. The bean counters know we have to have it:) It's about seven bucks a can at Wal*Mart.

But why? It was $65 a year ago. It has nothing to do with OIL or the war.
