Slightly Off Fork - What To Do?

So my fork isn't an obvious case of "fork's bent!" or anything like that. My bike just doesn't track quite straight. When I go with no hands it wants to turn to one side. If I look down from the bars, I'm pretty sure I can see that it's slightly off. This is my not-raining rider, so I'd really like to get it fixed before it gets nice out(Damn WI, it's till not nice out.) and I know I wont have the money to get it fixed until well into summer because I Have to save all of my money for a flight I have to make in August. Are there some measurements or something I can do to figure out what's wrong and maybe bend it back? Is this sort of thing fixable by a pretty handy home mechanic on a tight budget?
