I'd stop using Google.

If all search engines start charging then I'd search less, and meanwhile, I'll develop my own search engine.

Google would be dead and forgotten in a day if you'd need to pay for each search.

But it's not going to happen, Google is already an incredibly rich company, there's no reason at all why they would consider asking money for searches.
