Lead balloon? Helium shortage partly to blame for party city store closures

Helium is an essential chemical element used in MRI scanners, rocket fuel tanks, and floating party balloons.

It’s also a finite natural resource, which is experiencing a worldwide shortage.

According to Gizmodo, the scarcity of helium has made it harder to sell balloons at Party City, which is now closing 45 stores.
