Does anyone know where to buy styrofoam blocks 4x4x8 ft. close to New orleans for a decent price.  I have found blocks for $750 but I know they can be sold much cheaper?

$750 for a single block sounds high.

We keep a rather comprehensive list here:

The closest I see on there are Grenada, MS and Houston, TX which are both quite a distance.

For 1lb foam in Iowa where I'm located it's available for under $200, and 2lb foam for a little over $300 plus shipping. Sometimes there are higher prices for 1 qty, and price breaks for higher quantities that are worth asking your block molder about. Also the prices do fluctuate with petroleum prices as Polystyrene is made from a combination of Ethylene and Benzene which are petroleum based products.
