A gauge that is swinging that rapidly is telling me that there is a wiring problem in the circuit, it is going from closed to open then back again as you are driving, as far as cost it varies greatly depending on where you live, the prices of parts, labor costs etc. I would suggest that you check the reviews of shops in your area, find one with good reviews and a good labor rate, see if they have a diagnostic routine and what it can tell you.

It is very common. My buick lesabre has done this 5 times total in 270,000 miles. The gauge attached to the side of the fuel pump, malfunctions and commonly causes problems. Replace the pump and drive on :-)
