Try your local wholesaler

If you are only looking for one tank they are usually the best prices..

then depending on what company tanks you buy depends on numbers from tank as Air products tanks are alluminion they hold nearly twice as much gas a BOC and are lighter to lift.. But it all depends wher eyou are as to who your local supplier is..

If you go direct to BOc or Air products they will charge you a very high price as they sell on volume sales..

how many balloons per tank is on the websites

Here is a really interesting and informing artical about Helium.

http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/06/22/the-cost-of-funny-voices-helium-shortage-sends-prices-soaring/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

This is my favourite paragraph,
"Cornell University scientist Robert C. Richardson, who won a Nobel prize in physics for the discovery of super fluidity in Helium-3, has blamed low prices. “It should be treated as a precious commodity,” he said in 2010, prior to the release of a report that called on the U.S. to reconsider its decision to sell off its helium reserves. A party balloon should cost $100, he has said, to reflect the true value of the gas that lifts it."

I don't know what is in the USA or in GB, and this price is high or low, but here in Hungary a 40L / 6QM tank of He 4.6 (>= 99,996%) is around US$230 / GBP150 from Messer, and Linde.

I am agree with Pam Pearce suggestion.. Try your local wholesaler. And Try Helium Tank Canister to fill 50 x 9" balloons. It can be disposed of safely at recycling. May be in UK It's price are not more than £25.45
