In Tucson right now, an 80 lb sack of alfalfa-bermuda mix pellets runs $18.50+. Last week, 80 lb bales of bermuda hay ran me $18. Its been that way for most of the last 2 years. IIRC, it hit $20/bale last winter. Never dropped much during the summer because of gas prices and the drought in the midwest.
A few years ago, it ran around $10-12/bale. You can get better prices if you buy by the semi-load, but not by much. Not unless you know someone farming hay locally.
