Dollar prices in Pakistan were at PKR 76 and people were ecstatic.
Dollar prices have shot up considerably in recent times. They stabilized around PKR 140 in November and of course, people have been incredibly upset about this. So when a glitch on Google showed the price at PKR 76, almost couldn’t believe it.
Last evening currency rates for Dollars seemed to have hit a historic low on Google

It honestly happened randomly, and the US Dollar prices were not the only ones which were affected
The Euro, Pound Sterling, Singaporean Dollar and others were also shown to have been devalued.

After a momentary joy Pakistanis soon started realizing that it was nothing but a glitch
Of course, when people realized this was nothing more than a glitch since the chart on the right side showed a trend much more in line with what the prices had been in previous days.
We can confirm that the dollar rate has gone back to normal
However as the news broke of the surprising exchange rate Pakistanis, as usual, responded to the entire situation with the classic humor

The biggest topic of conversation on Twitter, and the top three trends are STILL all related to this situation as of this morning
The entire situation was pretty surreal. We hope no one was actually prompted to buy currency because of this glitch.
