We all know that lemon prices have surged drastically in the past month. While the temperatures are rising, the demand for lemon-based coolers is ever-increasing. From nimbu paani to lemon soda and so on, lemons are in huge demand in this hot weather, but the high prices have made it difficult for everybody to enjoy these drinks. Lemons were being sold at a whopping rate of ₹200 per kilogram in Gujarat, while in the Delhi NCR region, the rates had further gone up to ₹300 per kilogram.

For the unversed, before the price inflation, lemons were being sold at about ₹50-₹69 per kilogram. This sudden price hike created quite a stir online, with several memes and jokes trending on the internet. It seems like this has gone beyond online and on another level. So, what we are about to share with you may blow your mind.
