From the official ESTA website ESTA visa waiver online

"

As a result of Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (PL 115-123), which extended the ESTA fee to 2027, and the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (PL 116-94), the ESTA travel promotion fee was increased from $10 to $17, in addition to a $4 operational fee. CBP will begin collecting the new fee amount on May 26, 2022. Individuals with an approved ESTA do not have to re-apply at this time, as an ESTA is valid for up to two years.

Rant

Well we know the USA is all about the mighty dollar annoyingly. I’m only in transit! and forget telling me that it costs to process me through immigration, we do the same for your lot for free. There are certain costs countries should bear (or airlines). I can't find an argument for asking the traveller to pay. Needs to be said/vent.
