Hawaii, Wyoming, Washington, D.C. and Maryland Have Highest Variability

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In some states, car insurance rates varied close to 50% between the cheapest and most expensive months in 2013, according to a new report. Hawaii's 47.9% variance led the nation, followed by Wyoming (39.7%), Washington, D.C. (35.3%) and Maryland (34.8%).

The smallest differences were observed in South Dakota (1.9%), Arkansas (3.7%), Utah (4.4%) and Iowa (4.9%). Nationally, car insurance rates ranged 7.5% from the cheapest month (December) to the most expensive (March).

"All of this illustrates why it's so important for consumers to regularly shop for car insurance," said Laura Adams, senior analyst, "For example, while December was the cheapest month nationally, it was actually the most expensive in 11 states. You won't know whether you're getting a good deal unless you compare at least three different quotes."
