2009 Infiniti FX50 AWD: TPMS says "You're Screwed"

When the FX50 shined that TPMS light at me this morning, I knew I was going to miss the meeting I was already running late for. Checked all four tires and discovered that the rear driver side tire was low by 10 psi (supposed to be 33, it was at 23). I got myself to the nearest gas station and filled it up to spec. The light went off and I gingerly drove it to the office. Checked the tire again and it had held the air for the brief drive. (We also note that it's time for an oil change. We'll take care of that soon.)

I turned the case over to the Mikes. Mr. Magrath took it to our beloved Stokes. A screw in the dead center of the tread was removed, and the tire was patched for the tidy price of $20.

What does it cost to get a tire patched in your neck of the woods?
