LEDs replacing bulbs

One thing that I have noticed is a relatively quiet use of LEDs in headlights, running lights, interior lights, taillights, etc. The surprising thing to me is that they don't seem to be charging more for them. They are definitely allowing for more creativity in terms of the looks of the cars, and they may actually be cheaper overall to manufacture. Does anyone know the relative economics of LED lighting in these applications?
