"The last helium crisis occurred in 2006-2007 and we were able to continue to provide product to our customers as it was short lived.  The crisis we are in now are has bee lasting since 2011 and we are in allocations well over 2 years.  Our supply from foreign suppliers is limited and much more costly.  In the end we all be paying more."
