Lime Village is a census-designated place (CDP) in Bethel Census Area, Alaska, United States. The 2000 census found a population of six.

In July 2008, Lime Village gained notoriety[citation needed] when it was reported that their gasoline prices were more than double of the already-high national average of over $4/gallon with Lime Village selling regular unleaded gasoline at $8.55/gallon. The high prices were considered ironic considering that Alaska is one of the main suppliers of oil in the United States, but have the highest state average due to scattered villages throughout Alaska such as Lime Village making it difficult to transport oil and other goods.
