Grammar: Cost

Douglas likes new things. He also has expensive taste. He wants a new car. The problem is, it costs too much. The car that he wants is a Porsche. He would love to drive it, but it costs too much.

In fact, buying it is not the only problem. The car costs too much to run. It needs high octane gasoline. It needs the best oil. And parts for the car also cost too much.

Just running the car would cost more than Douglas can afford. He should not buy this car.
