I am replacing a gas stove with electric stove, how much should it cost to put in a 220 amp plug.

I certainly hope you mean 220 Volt plug, not 220 Amp - I am going to assume your mean 220V, probably need a 40 or 50 amp circuit, though I have seen induction and designer kitchen multi-oven ranges going higher than that. If you did mean 220A ignore the following and move in next door to me, so I can heat my house with the radiated heat from your kitchen.

You are talking about $50-100 for the outlet and box, and about $3-5/LF for the wiring depending on how and where being run and if THHN or SEOOW or what and if exposed or in conduit, and from about $100-250 for the breaker depending on how old your panel is. Labor minimum probably around $200 in simplest case right near the breaker box, on up to more normal $300-400'ish range in all but real bad access or very long run cases.

This assumes your breaker panel and main service can handle the added load (should be OK with 200A service in most cases, 100A marginal and may or may not be OK, under 100A is going to add quite a few hundreds to potentially much more if entire service and breaker panel needs upgrading. Since I presume you have looked and there is no outlet there, then you may be looking at an older home without panel capacity for electric dryer or range, or if electric dryer is wired then it may have taken up the capacity needed for the range, so you my be looking at more than just a outlet installation.

If you do have to get into a breaker panel upgrade or entire service upgrade, there are a number of prior questions on that issue with ballpark costs in the Home > Electrical link in Browse Projects, at lower left.

Also above does not include repairing holes in drywall or repainting of access holes, which can commonly run $200-400 range unless you have open joists in basement or crawlspace so there is no access issues.
