How much does a front end alignment cost?

Lately my car has been wanting to vear off to the left when traveling down the road, but I just figured the tires needed aligning. But when I got my oil changed, the guy asked me if it had been vearing off, and when I said yes, he said I might want to get my front end checked.

An alignment should cost anywhere from $60 to $120 depending on where you have it done and what specials are going on. Watch your newspaper flyers. I would get a 4 wheel alignment. Rear end problems are more common that you might think. Just getting the front aligned may waste your money.
I would hope this "mechanic" told you the specifics of exactly why he asked you the question. If not, go somewhere else for your oil changes. This could be a safety issue depending on what he saw. If he didn't, I would call and ask. If you can't get the info, get this looked at asap. He may have seen a damaged component or tires worn to the steel cord, either of which is something you have to fix right away.

He said he noticed my steering wheel was 'cocked'.

About 70 bucks for a 4 wheel alignment, with a 6 month warranty at sears auto centers.
