Plumbing in the Home/Wax Ring

Question
What is a reasonable price for a plumber to charge to replace a wax ring for a toilet ?

Answer
I consider this a service call and would charge $55 labor and materials.I am in upstate NY.  Others tack on a trip charge and try to get another 30 to 50 which is a ripoff. A lot depends on where you live. Big city plumbers charge  quite a bit more.
