Q: Am I being ripped off by a mechanic? on 1998 Chevrolet Malibu

I have a 98 Chevy Malibu and during a fuel filter repair some idiot stripped the cap and now the filter is loose and will not fit, I took it to a machanic and he want to charge close to $300 and the parts are cheap but the labor charge is like $200! Is this a fair price or am I being ripped off because I'm a young lady and they think I do not know any better?
