In no way should we use the word doubt for question, even less so for a grammar question. You might like to check (search) the forum's past messages for any previous topics on the difference.

Now regarding the word "following," I would suggest the following:

A list of my favorite fruits follows:

-apple

-watermellon

-banana...


- I can´t buy the P4 processor "due to" the expensive price

Suggested:

I can't buy... because it cost too much money.

I can't buy... because I can't afford one.


- I want to buy a new car, but i can´t "due to" the price

Suggested:

I want to buy... but I cannot because it costs a lot of money.

I want to buy... but I cannot afford one.

I won't buy... because I cannot afford one.


Of course, other people's suggestions may sound better.
