Question on the Limiting Value of Ratios of Consecuative Primes...

Is there some analytic limit to the ratio of consecuative primes?  The
expression  Limit[Prime[i]/Prime[i+1],{i,->Infinity}] returns unevaluated.
Plotting Table[ Prime[i]/Prime[i+1],{i,1,20000}] shows a lot of structure
with a minimum of 3/5.
