Here (http://www.uspto.gov/) is a good place to start looking. This link (http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/ac/qs/ope/fee2003oct01.htm) goes directly to fee information (scroll down a ways).

Actually, you don't even have to officially register a trademark. You can just slap a TM symbol on something that you KNOW FOR SURE that no one else is using - and as long as you have proof that you trademarked it at a certain point (by notary public, etc), you can be fairly confident that your trademark is safe.
However, registering it allows you official proof and absolute confidence.
