High Cost Of LimesIn case you haven’t noticed the price of limes lately have been going through the roof. One restaurant has reported that a case of limes that used to cost them $14 is now costing them $100. This may mean that the cheap happy hour margarita may soon be going by the wayside.

Why is this happening? According to the report below by KERA news it’s a number of factors. Among those factors are floods, cranky drug cartels, crop plagues, less limes being grown and more people demanding them. This is not an all-inclusive list by any means.
