I suggest taking a look at nearlyfreespeech.net for hosting small,
low-traffic Web sites. You only pay for the bandwidth and storage
that you actually use. I switched from a $9/month hosting provider
earlier this year, and just finished transferring my domains from Dyn
today. For a dynamic Web site under a single domain, the total cost
might be around $25/year.

It's not a general VPS service, though -- you don't get to run
persistent processes like mod_perl, for example.
