Key turning issue

I posted this a year ago and am just reaching out to see if anyone else has had the same issue. 95% of the time my key turns just fine when I go to start the car, but everyone once in a while the key will not budge at all. There seems to be no pattern to this inconvenience. I know the trick to shake the steering wheel a little so that is not the issue. Sometime it stays "locked" for only a few minutes and sometimes it is an hour or so. Also does anyone have any idea of the cost of just replacing the tumbler and key?
