What about using the axis scale command on the graph two way command?  I centered the price data at its mean and gave the command
twoway (scatter mpg pricecentered), yline(20) xscale(range(-10000 10000)) xscale(line) xline(0)
I drew a line at mpg=20 and at x=0.

Thumping through Mitchell, http://www.stata-press.com/books/vgsg.html
there is not much of what you want to be seen there, and I am afraid he
exhausts much of what Stata can do in terms of -graph-s.
You could look at the advanced examples in -help graph_combine-...

Betreff: st: Axes for graphs

Is there a way to have Stata put the axes in the center of the graph?
An editor wants the standard blackboard graph that has the y axis going
up the middle of the page and the x axis across the middle of the page
with the two meeting at (0,0).

Sort of like this:

			 Y

		    5  |
		    4  |
		    3  |
		    2  |
		    1  |
______________________________________  X
 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 |  1  2  3  4  5  6
		    -2 |
		    -3 |
		    -4 |
		    -5 |
