(KPNX) Cartel violence, blight and bad weather in Mexico have driven the price of a case of limes in the Valley from about $14 to $120.

To fight the price squeeze, Central Bistro in Phoenix and Local Bistro in north Scottsdale are offering a nearly free cocktail, draft beer or house wine to anyone who brings in 5 pounds of limes.
