    How to express the value of a good

    I'm looking for a way to replace "стоить" using the following sentence:

    Каждый километр дорог в этой стране стоит в три с половиной раза дороже чем в других странах ЕС.

    How about "обходится"?
    It appears to me that обходиться isn't your everyday verb and can therefore be only used under certain circumstances.
    When do I use it? Can I use it here?

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.
