Aperture/Price

Can someone please explain the reason why it seems that usually the larger the aperture the higher the cost? I understand why pro lenses are more due to build quality and such. But don't understand why aperture causes the price to increase so much. Is it harder to make a large aperture lens? Why? Is it more difficult for manufactures to get proper focus or other issue with having the larger aperture? Thanks
