Lens filters: Are they needed as much as sales people claim?

Just curious.  If they are ill buy one, but the prices of them at my camera stores are just flat out ridiculous.  $90 for a cheap one?  And goes upwards of $350.  No way id even pay $90 for one unless it was 100% needed and beneficial to the lens itself, otherwise i just stick wit the hood that is 1/4 the price.
