Grammar: Cost

Douglas likes new things. He also has expensive taste. He wanted a new car. The problem was, it cost too much. The car that he wanted was a Porsche. He loved to drive it, but it cost too much. In fact, buying it was not the only problem.

The car cost too much to run. It needed high octane gasoline. It needed the best oil. And parts for the car also cost too much. Just running the car cost more than Douglas could afford. He shouldn't have bought this car.
