Don't think this is accurate. There's been a general shortage of Helium lately, and basically people used to be able to buy cheap Helium out of the Federal Helium Reserve. They're basically selling it all off and getting out of the Helium business.

This was started back when we were still looking at blimps for warfare. There is no need for this much Helium for wartime use anyone.

In the past, it's been kept artificially cheap due to the government involvement, they price will be rising as they get out until new Helium distillation operations start producing.

EDIT: Helium isn't the smallest btw, that honor goes to Hydrogen.
