ND, SD Auto Insurance Premiums Among Lowest

January 6, 2011

North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm says auto insurance premiums paid by drivers in the Dakotas remain among the lowest in the nation.

Hamm cites a new report issued by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. He says in 2008, the average auto insurance premium in North Dakota was $644, compared with the national average of $903.

Iowa was the least-expensive state, at an average of $616, followed by Wisconsin at $641. North Dakota was next on the least-expensive list, followed by South Dakota at $651.

The most expensive state was Louisiana, where the average auto insurance premium was $1,275.
