The situation worsened in October, with the price of eggs per dozen surging by over Rs. 14. In some major cities like Gujranwala, Rawalpindi, and Karachi, the cost of eggs has reached an alarming Rs. 322 per dozen, according to documents.

Gujranwala stands out as the city with the most expensive eggs, where residents are shelling out an average of Rs. 322.16 per dozen.
