Why doesn’t a 2 sided print cost the same as a 1 sided print job?

Print charges are based on sheets of paper not the number of sides of the paper that are printed. So, it costs the same to print a sheet of paper with print on both sides as it does to print a page on only one side if duplex is not used.

So for example:
