I know I've seen something before that states that Grid Control is included with your database license, but I can't find it at the moment. As Brandon stated, it's not in the price list. The licensing document does state that there is no fee for the repository database:

( )
A separate Oracle Database can be installed and used as a Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control (OEM Grid Control) repository without additional license requirements, provided that all the targets (databases, applications, and so forth) managed in this repository are correctly licensed. This database may also be used for the RMAN repository. It may not be used or deployed for other uses.

Now if you actually want Grid Control to be somewhat useful for anything besides basic administration, then you'll need to license the management packs, and those are definitely NOT free.

I'm sorry to disagree, but grid control is NOT free. Database Control and AS Control are included in db and oracleAS, but grid control is a separate stand-alone product and it's license is a hefty sum.
