Marek, there aren't really any industry standards. Much will depend on the type of fitting, whether you're getting a fit at a bike shop or with a coach, and also where you're located.

I'm in San Francisco. I've seen fittings for as little as $75 from local bike shops. And there are coaches who charge $400+.

I charge $150 and include cleat positioning in my fee.

If you're talking about a new road bike, the shop you bought from should include it for free. My shop (Chicago suburbs) gives a free fit with the purchase of a road bike. A first time roadie getting an entry level bike usually gets a pretty standard fitting. The people who have been riding for a while (and are in a position to give us more input on their likes and dislikes of previous bikes) get a fit more customized to their preferences. Your shop should also include a stem swap for free if your body position calls for it. If you bought the bike somewhere else (on the internet?) or used, we'd charge you $50 to $100. When you're shopping around, you should also ask about whether the price includes additional "fine tuning" visits, or if they will cost you extra.

When I had my bike built, I had a fitting that was only 15 minutes and cost $30.
My one leg is shorter and now I am thinking I need to go somewhere that goes
through the whole rigamarole. How\where would I go about finding a top level
fitting service in my area (Pittsburgh)?

Pretty good price. My local Spec. store lists the cost as $150 for the 2D and $300 for the 3D. Their site says the 3D is supposed to take 2-3 hours, and you get a thumb-drive with all of your measurements and recommendations to take with you. This LBS includes the 2D for free with any new bike purchase over $700. YMMV.

i got my seat adjusted and new handlebars and bar tape. They swapped everything out and it was $40 for the bars, 15 for new bar tape and $25 for labor.

Its a newer shop run by a hometown guy and I think he is undercharging in attempt to build a good customer base

it sorta depends on your body, and the fitting done. i fit on most 56 cm bikes just about perfectly when they are stock. i need a stem swap on some, but im lucky in the fit department. i was charged 100 to fit me to my old bike, and i was allowed to apply the 100 as credit to the new bike
