If you need balloons for an upcoming party, you might be out of luck. The reason? A world-wide helium shortage. The problem stems from maintenance problems at helium plants around the world. Bay area Party City stores have warned customers that balloon orders may not get filled at some locations. The helium that IS available has shot up in price from about 100 dollars a tank to 400 dollars.
