First problem after 66,000 miles

I think my brake booster is shot. The brake pedal is really hard at low speeds. Just went out all of a sudden. Hopefully it is just a vacuum loss somewhere but I fear the worst.

Anyone have an idea what a new brake booster might cost?

Shouldn't I get some sort of warning light with this problem because right now I don't.

I hope it is just a vacuum leak somewhere. Anyways I found the brake booster for $324 online and labor is really cheap over here. I will post my results in this thread.
