Reasons why the cost of car insurance is on the rise

Auto insurance can vary from person to person due to your location, the type of car you drive, age and driving record, there are a few things that factor into everyone’s price increase.

Economic Inflation: Over the past few years we’ve seen a rise in cost for just about everything. Rises in auto parts, medical care, and for labor is contributing to increase insurance prices. According to consumer price index, car repair costs are up almost 20% in the past year. On top of that, car prices rose dramatically in 2022 because of global supply chain issues.
