Default 300M ignition locking up

I have a 99 300M approaching, in a hurry, 100K. Last week the ignition lock started refusing to turn. I got the tip for whacking the end of the key and it worked so far. How much can I expect to pay to have it fixed?

Thanks

Thanks, considering I have lots of thumbs, I may let Chrysler do it. I think the part is $60.00 and for a half hour labor it runs maybe another $60. I would have more faith in them than me getting the tumblers right.
