Substitutes for Lemon Grass- Suggestions?

I have several recipes calling for lemongrass that I've been wanting to try. Living in a mid-Wisconsin food dessert, lemongrass is virtually unavailable at this time of year unless I travel to a more metropolitan area, quite a distance away.

Can anyone suggest a substitute or combination of ingredients that would be a close simulation of lemon grass flavor? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
