Question vet fees, cost of shoes?

Hi. I'm new here but I have a general question. I am thaking a college speech class (going for nursing) and am doing an informative speech on the purchase and care of a horse (I had to put my morgan down 6 years ago at the age of 33 after having him 20 years) and am curious how prices have changed from what I paid before. What is the average cost for spring shots and then for fall shots now (was aboug $75 and $120)? Tooth floating? Regular kegg shoes (was $50/6 weeks), and basic corrective shoes ($120)? Do they still do tube worming or are the paste wormers good enough now to avoid tubing and bloody noses? I live in Illinois in a SW suburb of Chicago, so local costs are appreciated, but similar "big city" costs are also welcome! Any help to refresh my fifancial memory would be appreciated! Thanks!

I'm in northwestern, NJ.

Prices for shoeing for my gelding is $100, but for corrective shoeing (for a horse with navicular and needs shoes on all 4 hooves cost around $200.

For fall shots, it cost roughly $167 per horse (that depends on the vet call and what shots you do/do not have)

Worming, I believe is a paste, is anywhere from $9-$12 a tube.

Teeth floating is about $75 per horse

If you want to know board, board at my current place is $400 per horse
