UNDATED (WKZO) - Do you cringe when it comes time to pay your auto insurance premium? Turns out Michigan has the nation's second highest average car insurance rates with an average annual premium of $2,520, according to an Insure.com study released this week. Louisiana is the highest state at $2,699 per car. The data shows that Illinois drivers pay 47 percent  less, Wisconsin drivers pay 51 percent  less, Indiana 53 percent  and Ohio drivers fork out 56 percent ($1,414) less per car than drivers in Michigan. 

Again, by comparison, Michigan $2,250 vs. Ohio’s $1,414. The study cited the outrageously high cost of medical care charged to auto accident victims as the primary reason for Michigan's skyrocketing auto insurance rates.
