For the _source_ yes, if it is not shipped with the software itself.

I cant actually find the word "reasonable" in the GPL, but I presume
you refer to section 3, specifically 3b. This only applies if you
do not ship source.
I see nothing in the GPL that prohibits sale of a work (including
source) for any amount the copyright holder desires.
