With an average annual premium of $427, Nebraska motorists pay the ninth-lowest car insurance rates in the country.

That's according to a new analysis by Wallethub, which compared premiums across the U.S. based on certain criteria.


"WalletHub compared full coverage rates for policies that include collision and comprehensive coverage with a $500 deductible, $100,000 in bodily injury liability coverage per person (up to $300,000 per accident), $50,000 of property damage liability coverage per accident, $100,000 in uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage per person (up to $300,000 per accident), and $50,000 in uninsured motorist property damage coverage per accident," the consumer finance website said of its analysis. "We used a 45-year-old, single man with a clean driving record and good credit as the policyholder for these sample quotes."


Nebraska's average premium was $153 more a year than the state with the lowest premium, Wyoming, at $274. South Dakota and Iowa drivers fitting Wallethub's criteria pay an annual premium of $326, good for a tie for second.


At the other end of the spectrum, Michigan drivers pay the highest average premium, at $1,908 annually. New York drivers pay the second most at $1,828 annually.


Wallethub notes insurance companies use a number of factors to determine premium costs, including age of the driver, driving record, credit and the number of miles driven annually.
