Why do women pay more for car insurance than men in Michigan?
Are women worse drivers than men? Michigan auto insurance companies appear to think so.
In most states, there’s not much of a difference between auto insurance rates for men and women. But in Michigan, there’s a difference of about 4.03% between them, with men paying $2,087 and women paying $2,175.
That's according to an analysis by The Zebra, a website that compares auto insurance premiums.
Wyoming, where men pay more for auto insurance, is the only state with a greater disparity.
