If you live in Kentucky and own a car, then you‚Äôre paying too much for Automobile Insurance.
If someone is telling you otherwise, I‚Äôve got some excellent advice for you. Stop listening to that person!¬† They obviously don‚Äôt have a clue about the cost of auto insurance in Kentucky.
Which states would you expect to pay the most for insurance? States with bigger cities, and heavy traffic? Commonsense would lead most of us to expect to find New York, California, and New Jersey at the top of the list.¬† Using the same logic we can also add Massachusetts, Illinois, Florida, and Connecticut.¬† And while not a state, I would also expect to see Washington D.C. on a list of states with higher auto insurance premiums.¬†
Six states have average auto insurance rates that range from $1,750 to $2,500. Starting with the most expense:
4. Connecticut and,
5. New York
For the most, this likely seems appropriate. But for many it¬† will be eye-opening to find how high car insurance is in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.¬† Surprisingly the residents of Kentucky pay more for auto coverage than California.¬† The same is true for Washington D.C., Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Illinois.
Who is this person that says you‚Äôre car insurance is not expensive?
Kentuckians on average spend $1,752 annually for auto insurance. That‚Äôs almost 30% more than the national average.¬† It is a fact; your auto insurance is expensive.
- If you are a good driver in Kentucky, you pay too much for insurance.

¬†Compared with most other states, Kentucky auto insurance cost more.¬† While this is true for most residents, not everyone in Kentucky overpays.¬† Uninsured and underinsured drivers clearly don’t pay too much for car insurance.¬† But don’t read that to say that this group doesn’t have a hand in cost of car insurance in Kentucky.¬† Their contribution is significant.¬† Those that drive with inadequate auto coverage, raise auto premiums for everyone.¬† This increase in state demand for uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. Which in turn places upward pressure on the overall cost of auto insurance premiums.
