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.
Why does Michigan have such a large disparity based on gender?
