What you are looking for is a LED chaser circuit.

Drop LED chaser circuit into Google and you'll come up with lots of hits.

I've included two of those links below but there are dozens more.

Well this one below is probably the cheapest

http://www.amazon.com/NightFire-LED-Sequencer-Kit-Red/dp/B005PFBPP4/ref=sr_1_12/179-5920637-8515005?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1412544636&sr=1-12

There's this one http://www.eidusa.com/Electronics_Kits_ARROWER_L10_01.htm available in a range of prices.  From everything to just bare board and you purchase the electronics.

As for the two circuits I suggested earlier can't really price those.
