    We use "at" for numbers. A number is a location. A number is a location on a number line.

    This jacket was on sale at a good price. - A good price is really a number.

    They live at 22 River Street. - Once again, a number.

    They live on River Street. - There's no number here.

    The movie starts at 10:00.

    The movies starts at around 10:00.

    Prices start at $600.00.

    Prices start at around $600.00.

    You can reach me at 999.888.7777. - Once again, a number is a location.

    Use "at" for locations.

    Don't point that thing at anyone. It's dangerous. - Anyone is a target. A target is a location.

    _1_2_3_4_5_6_7_8_9_

    Wherever anything starts, that place is a location. It starts at one and then continues until six. It ends at six.

    Numbers are locations. Numbers are prices. Prices are locations.

    If you mean the price of stock market shares, it's not talking about that. Shares of stock vary in price from a few cents to hundreds and thousands of dollars per share.

    "Prices typically start at around $600." means that lowest price is around $600.

    The prices of the best hotels in the city start at around $600 a day.
