Helium Shortage?

Yesterday as I was standing in line at the Customer Service counter at the Harris Teeter grocery store that I have recently started shopping at, when I saw a sign apologizing for not being able to hand out any more free balloons to all the kiddies due to the helium shortage. This prompted me to ask the customer service rep that waited on me what that was all about and she said that all she knew is what the sign said and how upsetting it was to all the mothers and kids that have become used to getting these balloons, just for the asking.

Last night I went online and Googled “helium shortage” and sure enough there is such a shortage that is really putting a damper on many businesses that rely on helium for a variety of reasons. So if you are seeing less and less of helium filled balloons for all the parties and other events that you are used to seeing them used at you will know that the party holders aren’t being cheap, there really is a helium shortage that scientists are saying will possibly end our use of helium in the next 30 years or so.
