MS Project is very expensive.
Are there any cheaper or even free solutions to create Gantt charts, track resources and costs?  Or perhaps just one of these three?

You could use ProjectLibre (Open source replacement of Microsoft Project) from:

http://www.projectlibre.org/ >.

Also take a look at GanttProject from:

and see which one you like; the first one is preferred. Your choice and preference, however.

OpenWorkbench (OWB)

Once known as "Project Workbench" or "Project Manager Workbench" this was formerly a commercial product now available free.

This has similarities to MS Project, but also some strong differences. Principally OWB is a more "resource oriented" approach to planning. Regrettably the UI is a little old fashioned but if you take the time to understand it it's a very strong product.

btw: I think you can import MSP plans if they have been saved in the MSP XML format (it's been a while).
