    What are your guy's opinions on insurance prices these days? Why do you guys think the insurance prices are sky rocketed for even
    younger people that drive newer cars?

    You know some young kid that works close to my home ask me if I wrote P/C, which I don't. He stated he pays around $2100 a year, one car new and no tickets or accidents. I found that outrageous! Yet though he says it is about as cheap as he has found. Sent off to see a friend, I just couldn't believe the price though! I think he is around 24.

    Yup

    Don't you just love paying a high premium for the immature irresponsible one's whose mommy and daddy pay for everything?

    I pay about $1800 a year. My insurance costs more than my car payment.

    Of course, I wonder how prices would change if auto insurers couldn't rely on financial responsibility laws.

    Also, credit score plays a disproportionately big role in determining auto premium. If you're just starting out and don't have a 5-7 year credit history, might as well just get used to paying out the butt.
