Helium shortages reported by Atlanta-area party stores

Helium is in short supply in the Atlanta area, reports WSB-TV, and perhaps elsewhere.

WSB’s Berndt Peterson interviewed Party America Acworth owner Michelle Chambers, who said she’s been struggling to get enough to helium to meet demand.

Chambers added supply issues are directly related to last year’s Saudi Arabia-led embargo of Qatar — the second-largest producer of helium in the world. Supply lines being off in Texas are complicating things, as well.
