Which State has the highest insurance rates?

Highest to lowest: Mercedes-Benz CL65 to the Toyota Tacoma pickup

Driving an expensive car can make you the target for more than the occasional speeding ticket. It seems you will also get some of the most expensive car insurance rates. So if you drive a Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG coupe with a clean record in Oregon, you'll still incur the one of the highest insurance premiums of any state in the nation at $5867. This is according to Insure.com, which is a comprehensive resource of consumer insurance information and data.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, driving a Toyota Tacoma pickup in Wyoming you will get you one of cheapest premiums in the nation at $698.

While Louisiana and Michigan are the most expensive places on average to buy insurance, Maine residents generally enjoy the cheapest. If you live in a rural part of the country rather than the city, insurance claims are cheaper simply because more accidents tend to happen in highly populated city areas.

Here are some average stats insurance rates starting with the most expensive:

Louisiana- $2699
Michigan- $2520
California- $1819
North Dakota- $1501
Maine- $934
National average- $1510

These numbers were calculated by Insure.com, with assistance from Quadrant Information Services. Quadrant questioned a number of leading insurance companies to provide insurance rates for more than 750 car models. These were calculated using ten zip codes per state.
