Consumer surplus is what you would pay if you had to and what you actually pay.

For example if I had to, I would be willing to pay a high price for a news papers (maybe $20 dollars or even more). However most of the time I pay very little ($0-$2,) I could not possibly go without a newspaper; since. reading is something I need everyday. Not reading would make feel almost like being dead. You are no longer participating in the world.  I would be willing to pay a high price for it; but I usually read newspapers online for almost zero dollars. Therefore, there is a high consumer surplus.
