Where could I go to get a great keyword list, one that would also give me info on, what a word would commonly be priced, when bid on?

A site called 7Search is the only search engine I know of that publishes the exact sort of information you're looking for...a list of top keywords along with the amount being bid for the word(s). Here is their Top 1000 Kewords list:
Note that the list changes often, so you should check it regularly.
You can also check the CPC (cost-per-click) value of keywords using Google Adwords' Keyword Tool:
Just enter the keyword (either a single word or a phrase) that you want to know about, and the Keyword Tool will return information on that term, along with related keywords.
You won't see cost information right away. But use the pull-down menu where it says Choose Columns To Display, and select Show Estimated Avg CPC as the column to display.
Between 7Search and Google's Keyword Tool, you have two rich sources of statistics and information on popular keywords and the prices being paid for them for online advertising.
Let me know if there is anything more you need on this question. Just post a Clarification, and I'm at your service.

I suggest you spend some time with the Google Adwords Keyword Tool that I linked to earlier, as it likely has all the information and capabilities you need.
Enter a simple keyword of interest to you, and open the CPC column. By clicking on the column header, you can sort all the keywords by cost, finding the least expensive words of interest.
For instance, I entered the keyword 'dog', and Google returned scores of related keywords and phrases. After sorting them by CPC, I can easily pick out the 5-cents keywords (Google's minimum), such as:
weight loss dogs
and many more.
Let me know if that does the trick for you.

7search has a keyword suggestion tool similar to Google's, but with pricing as low as a penny. For instance, a search on the keyword 'dog' shows many one-cent keywords, such as 'canine obedience training'.
Give it a try, and see if it gets you the information you're after. The tool is here:

All the best,
