One reason might be the widespread use and acceptance of PHP and ASP by hobby programmers/beginner web developers. Java based applications have always been associated with an "enterprisy" setup hence the steep prices (enterprises can shell out more as compared to hobby programmers). Another interesting read in the comments here.

Also what jsp provide which are not provided by php and asp?

This eventually boils down to a platform/language based comparison. Can you make do with the features offered by the PHP langauge? Is there something specific you had in mind when you decided to include Java?

A pragmatic answer here depends a lot on what exactly do you want to do. Are you planning on creating a web application or a web site? Is budget a big constraint here?

If you are short on budget, are planning on creating a hobby website and have a familiarity with PHP, going the PHP route would be the simplest and cost-effective solution. If you are creating a critiical web application for a customer, the criteria would be to choose a combination which best suits your expertise since you would want to create a robust solution. In this case, go with the language you are most comfortable and well-versed in.
