SEATTLE — A study released Tuesday by “The Zebra,” an insurance comparison site, reports women on average pay more for car insurance than men.
The Zebra compared car insurance rates for all 50 states and learned women in Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Louisiana and Utah pay more for car insurance compared to men. For women in Oregon, the average annual difference was found to be $78 and in Washington, $58.
“While teenage boys pay more and are more dangerous drivers than teenage girls, middle-aged women pay more but are less dangerous drivers than middle-aged men,” according to The Zebra.
