Price Check: Lemons

Am I from the olden days? or did lemons used to cost a quarter? In today's edition of Price Check, we're blowing the whistle on this lemon scandal once and for all. We called 10 stores in Manhattan and came up with quite a range, starting with the most expensive—one lemon for one dollar, and making our way down to... yes—four lemons for a dollar!
