The repeated increase in fuel prices in the last 12 days has affected people in every way. This has not only increased the cost of their daily travel, but has also affected their food bills. 

The increase in fuel prices has led to an increase in the transportation cost in many parts of the country, due to which the prices of vegetables are skyrocketing. Due to this, along with the sellers of vegetables, the customers are also facing the brunt of inflation.

At the same time, the price of lemon and green chillies is also on the sky in vegetables. The cost of a lemon in Gujarat is Rs 18-25. Lemon is being sold in the wholesale market for around Rs 300 a kg. The retail price of lemon has increased by up to Rs 400 per kg in Vastrapur, Jodhpur.

The price of lemon in Delhi ranges from Rs 300 to Rs 350 per kg. That is, even in Delhi, the cost of a lemon is more than Rs 10. Delhi is witnessing record heat since the month of March, in such a situation lemon-water has become a luxury drink for common people amidst the scorching heat. 

At the same time, a vegetable seller in Hyderabad told that earlier he used to buy a whole sack of lemon for Rs 700, but now its cost has gone up to Rs 3,500.

Food prices at the highest level around the world


The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) says food prices are at their highest worldwide in March, as Russia’s attack on Ukraine hit markets with grain and vegetable oil prices.

War in Ukraine largely responsible


The Russo-Ukraine war has pushed up the prices of food items like grain and vegetable oils and caused massive supply disruptions. The Food and Agriculture Organization said the war in Ukraine was largely responsible for a 17.1 percent increase in the prices of grains, including wheat, oats, barley and corn.
