At you local neon-sign maker!? They must have their own glass-blowing facility. But how are you going to take it with you? Where do you need it for?

Thanks for the help and I am making an engineering project that will allow me to see electricity! It a spark jumping from a wire to another wire enlarged to a flame with the use of neon gas.

Neon is no good for flames - use a flammable gas. Have you some diagram of this thing?

Thanks everyone!
It kind of depends on how much you want.  If you just want a tiny amount, e.g to look at what kind of light it produces when excited, then find one of those little neon indicator lamps.

They come with electrodes already attached and everything. See attached picture.

If you want a big effing tank of it, then the places that sell gasses for welding, will likely have neon.  E.g.

If I can believe what Google Maps tells me, Airgas has stores in Phoenix and Mesa.
