Some of the things you originally mentioned like wages, taxes and transportation costs won't be significantly different between LEDs and incandescents. For other things you mentioned the prices will go down as they are mass produced and further efficiencies are found. Of course this will take time and LEDs will probably never be as cheap as incandescents, but at some point in the future they'll probably be at a price where there is no sticker shock.
