should not be more than an hours labour (usually around £30 mark) you could do it yourself if you got a set of spanners/sockets as rocker gaskets are an easy diy job, undo the retaining bolts ontop of the rockercover, remove any pipes attached (remember where they go if more than 1, could use tipex to mark) when there is nothing obscuring it from being removed give it a tap with a hammer and replace the gasket, do not over tighten the gasket bolts, check tightness before removing to give you an idea of torque

Why would there be oil in the spark plugs?

Simple. There is a circular gasket for each spark plug between located between the valve cover and the engine. If they are not properly sealed, the oil from the top of engine will leak out of the valve cover and pool into the spark plug sockets. You must remove the oil BEFORE you remove the spark plugs. Anyway, the fix is purchase and install a new valve cover gasket and spark plug gaskets and use a gasket sealant.

First remove spark plug wires from the top of the valve cover. then remove bolts or nuts around the edge of valve cover. once removed. take off cover and replace o-rings and gasket. gasket is located around edge of cover and o-rings are o shaped rubber gaskets on the cover around the holes where the wires normally go through. be sure to replace cover the same way you remove it. estimated cost would be $35 for just gasket and 0-rings it is recommended to also replace wires and spark plugs when doing this.that cost would be 60-$90 depending on make of vehicle.

Why would a valve cover gasket keep going out?

If, by "going out" you mean it leaks, I can think of a few reasons. First, damage in the cover itself. Second, an incorrectly installed gasket. Third, a blocked pcv valve which permits blow bye gas pressures to build in the engine block and fourth, leaking valve seals also permitting pressure to build in the lifter area.
