This country still has a strategic helium reserve because of the rarity and value of helium, and while it is true that this program is slowly being phased out and sold to private industry, there is growing concern in the scientific community about the uncontrolled release of helium from the use of party balloons and such. So much so that almost any university with a decent science program has a system in place to capture and re-liquefy helium used in experiments. Helium is more or less a non renewable resource because once released into the atmosphere it never come back down to earth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZkMQkHGj1s
