Auto Insurance on the Rise

Nationwide, the average cost of auto insurance jumped 50% between 1989 and 2005, but average per-car spending on coverage rose just 13% in California, according to the report. Other states where price hikes were held down, relatively speaking, included New Jersey with a 20% increase in that time period; Hawaii, 25%; New Hampshire, 30%; and Pennsylvania, 31%. States with the steepest rate changes were Nebraska, where average per-car costs surged 118% to $620 from $285 between 1989 and 2005, and South Dakota, where costs jumped 107% to about $565 from $274. Other high-increase states include: Montana, 104%; Wyoming, 101%; and Kentucky, 100%. Wyoming does not control rates, and the other four states require companies file notice of rate changes but don't require state preapproval of those changes.
