Google Maps broken?

I have the map enabled on my profile.  When I'm logged in, and go to my own profile, the map displays briefly, and then is overlaid by a gray screen that says "Oops! Something went wrong.  This page didn't load Google Maps correctly. See the JavaScript console for technical details."

When I'm logged out, and visit the top level of the site, the world map at the bottom of the page also displays briefly, and then is overlaid by the same gray "Oops!" screen.

Looking in the ol' JavaScript console, in either condition, I see this:

"You must enable Billing on the Google Cloud Project at Learn more at"

I suspect either GFX didn't renew their map subscription, or it finally got hit by the Google Maps price hike of a year or so ago.  (Basically, Google drastically lowered the number of "free" map views a site could get per time period, before having to pay for Google Maps.)

As far as I recall, this has started happening in the last week or so.  It worked correctly semi-recently.
