New York, Aug 27 (THAINDIAN NEWS) It is widely known that natural resources are hard to get and they are only extracted from specific areas. It was recently reported that the balloon industries are experiencing a shortage of Helium thus bringing the balloons companies into the spotlight.

The inflation is expected to hike up the prices of commodities-an idea that will not be favoring a lot of people especially the low earners. The researchers and the experts made this warning with a low tone and they advised the people to start seeking for ways to remedy the situation which is hardly preventable.

The world suppliers of Helium come from the United Sates of America and this is where the problem is alleged to have started from. The companies that deal with the production of Helium in the US are now undertaking maintenance activities thus causing the world to suffer from the disaster.

The helium companies are now experiencing losses that have even brought down the economy of some countries. The people who are now suffering are the balloon purchasers because the prices of balloons have now risen due to the inflation. For, instance in the United Kingdom, the price for a balloon increased by 20 percent. Balloons are commonly used for parties and it is therefore regarded as a big disappointment for the host of the parties.
