Increasing List Price of Enterprise Standard
Google is increasing the list price of Google Workspace Enterprise Standard beginning on April 11, 2023.
Google mentions that this updated price reflects the innovation that Google continues to deliver across their products, which include:

For Annual/Fixed-term plan customers, these changes will not impact the current contract or any renewal event prior to April 11, 2023. Pricing will go into effect the first time your subscription renews on or after April 11, 2023, depending on plan type, number of users, and any current discounts applied.
There are no list price changes to the other Enterprise editions, including education upgrades.
