Minor Brake Pedal Squeaking ('04 Accent)

Hello, one more (minor) issue~
I have the most obnoxious squeak coming from my brake pedal on my '04 Accent Automatic (U.S. version). It's not coming from the brakes themselves, as
near as I can tell. It seems to be coming directly from under the brake pedal but not in the interior side of the mechanism. It squeaks on the application AND the release of the brake, during stop-start traffic and at greater speeds.
I tell ya, during rush-hour traffic I get pretty annoyed with it, as I am sure most of nearby drivers are as well. It isn't a metal-on-metal grinding kind of squeal, but more like a rusty gate at a farmhouse or something...
Pointers, anyone?
I appreciate any help given and this group as a whole. I've read some great stuff here!

p.s. I have a tire recommendation if your looking for budget sporty tires: Sumitomo HTR200 I am extremely happy with my 175/70r 13 on stock steel wheels.

I've seen two things causing a squeak on brake application and release even when sitting still:
1. brake pedal mechanism squeaking -- cured by lubrication of mechanism
2. rear brakes out of adjustment/dust in drum -- cured by adjusting rear brakes and applying disc brake lube or anti-seize to the points where the shoes contact the backing plates.

Thanks, hyundaitech - hopefully the dealer will try one or both methods.

Lubing backing plates was needed, just as predicted!

p.s. they did charge me $53.99 for this. No charge for the motor mount adjust, $63.78 labor for battery install (my stupidity for not doing it myself), $86.17 for an "Interstate" battery - My local battery place did not have an exact replacement and wanted $70 for something similar but mentioned their application chart stated "difficult installation". I figure I could've saved the battery install price but otherwise I got off lucky. I greatly appreciate everyone's assistance...

Why not have someone listen while you apply and release the pedal in the driveway? You should be able to pinpoint the sound and give that point a little lube.
