How much does a professional music producer cost?

What's the price range for a professional music producer for a rock band? We're looking at working with one producer but want to be sure we're getting a good deal.
Are there any questions/features we should be asking the producer about to make sure we're getting a good deal? Right now he's telling us it's about $1500-$2000 per song, is that the going rate?

We're a band based in Seattle and looking at working with a local producer through a friend of ours.
We're going to ask him about any additional costs like mastering, but since we've never worked with a producer before we want to make sure to ask him the right questions and cover our bases.
Any experiences/advice is welcome. Thanks!
