I've seen them go as low as $2.95 for a .com domain. What is going on? Why is it so cheap now?

Don't know about all of them but i think it wasn't until about '95 that they started charging for domain names. I remember getting wasted a couple times in college around 94-95 and just collecting domain names. Even around '98 they were only $0.99 =)

ICANN controls the domain names, and allows Verisign to control most TLDs.

also, not all amazing domain names are taken, ie recently picked up cagedancemonkey.com
