The national average

The National Association of Insurance
Commissioners periodically makes a nation-
wide assessment of what people are paying
for auto insurance. The NAIC prepared and
published its most recent report at the end of
2015 for data collected in 2012 and 2013.
Based on the premise that almost everyone
must carry liability insurance and that com-

average expenditure countrywide was $841 a

from the $814 average in 2012.
