Having new keys made for some cars can get expensive. In some cases, you'd need to have the vehicle towed to the dealership to have the new key programmed to be able to start the engine. For less, you could have a spare key cut that would be able to unlock the door if it's a car with a keyhole, but you would need the key that OP lost to have it made... It's an unfortunate situation.
Okay. get a AAA membership (if you are in a country where it's available). It's $99 a year (or thereabouts) and you can call a locksmith up to 5 times without paying extra. Or Good Sam. I think they do a similar thing for a similar price. Also, get an extra key cut, and hide it somewhere secure on your car. Make a third copy to keep in your house. Problem solved.
Just think: if you threw away $170, you would have found your keys without calling the locksmith.
Oh, man. I'm always so careful with my keys as I don't have a spare for my car. Not going to tempt fate by saying anything negative, Yo.
