Just noticed after I turned on Prometheus, And I have 40 GBP more to pay each day. 

How can I delete the metric volume? and the save the money. I've deleted the prometheus service.

Please note that Prometheus is an external metric, which is chargeable[1]. Moving forward, you can avoid using Prometheus to avoid “Metric Volume” charges. Also, you can configure filters in the Stackdriver Collector and select which metrics get ingested[2].

If Prometheus was monitoring a cluster,  and this cluster was deleted, you would see the charges go away immediately.
