What happens now? 12 hours and transaction has zero confirmations.

Used Electrum, noticed the default miner fee was like $ 15 for my $ 120 payment. Manually adjusted to 90 satoshi per byte, and the calculation based on https://bitcoinfees.21.co/ at the time said it would have taken 6 hours max. 12 hours later I have zero confirmation. Couldn't add more fees to the transaction afterward….

So what happens now that my transaction isn't being mined?

Also, is this a temporary thing ($ 15 fees), or is this the new thing with Bitcoin, never had issues before with default fees and relatively low miner cost…
