It is a 300 CuFt tank, I think they call it a C tank but not sure. The price is $218 out the door. I have a 5 year tank rental agreement so I don't know what tank rental charges are but probably not much per day. That way I get to keep the unused helium.
I never had been refused a purchase of helium. This discussion started when a fellow balloonist in Iowa, Mike, N0MPM, had a problem with Airgas and reported it to the group and I am glad he did. Today, my local Airgas did confirm that there was a Force Majeure in effect for helium and that it is on allocation but for whatever reason (long term customer with multiple tank contracts **acetylene, oxygen, argon, argon-CO2 and helium**, sob story about our school balloon launch program or my good looks!!??) they agreed to sell me a tank.
