I tried searching here and google and couldn't get a good answer. I have a 2wd dually. If I use single wheel chains on the outer dually tire will the chains rub between the outer and inner dually tires? I can get single tire chains for about $40, but dually chains are about $200. The tires are size 225/75R16 M+S tires.

it may touch the inside. However how would that be any harder than riding on outer wheel??

I've seen commercial trucks (smaller ones) run single wheel (meaning outside wheel only) chains on dually rears.
I think if they touched it would be ok as long as its not jammed in there and really tight.
running single chain on a dually is pretty much a guarantee that you will chew up the inner sidewalls as the tires balloon out from bumps and whatnot. just depends on how tight the wheels are together
Running a single tire on a dually hub is not the end of the world, but you do put alot of strain on the spindle bearings. again, not the end of the world, but i wouldnt be putting any weight in the bed of the truck

You're not going to hurt anything running a single chain! I've never seen a problem from that.
Yank that outside dual off and run a single tire back there if you want. It will get around a bit better...lots do that here.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm ahead..
