How much do you pay for car insurance?

I know it depends on how many people you have covered, how many cars you have covered, and how complete your coverage is... but I'm just curious- what are you all paying for auto insurance?

Ours is 137 a month for 2 vehicles, full coverage on both, one brand new. We are both in our mid-twenties, and neither of us have had an accident in the past 5 years (*knock on wood). We only have 500 dollar deductibles and have the policies fixed so that anyone driving them, and I do mean anyone, is covered, regardless. I will be interested to see how everyone else's numbers compare...

We have two vehicles one older, one newer but not brand new. One is an SUV, the other a truck. We pay $112 a month. It is through the same company as our home insurance, so we get a discount.

State Farm takes out $146 a month. We have 2 vehicles with full coverage, no accidents/tickets and renewal discounts. This amount also includes renter's insurance. We live in a metropolitan area with lots of crazy drivers and uninsured motorists who should be driving, but are.

We live in Oklahoma. We pay $205 a month. That is for our 2007 Dodge Quad Cab truck, a 1994 farm truck, and my daughter's 2006 Dodge truck. (she is 19) We have $500 deductible and full coverage on all vehicles. Our insurance company is Farm Bureau with whom we also have our house insurance. I worked for them for awhile after we moved to OK(before I found a teaching job) and they have some 'different' rules and stuff. As far as I know, they don't give a discount for no accidents (I haven't had one in 18 years; no tickets either). But we know our agent personally and that means alot too.

I think I'm getting messed over....

We're paying 168 a month for a 08 Civic, and 98 Accord.

Our deductible is $500, and we have full coverage on both

I've never had a ticket, or accident, Thank Almighty God.
My husband had a ticket many years ago, but that dropped off our insurance a few years ago.
We're both in our 30's.

We pay every six months for both of ours. DH's 10 year old Jeep runs us around $300. My 12 year old sports car runs around $400. We carry full coverage with a $500 deductible on both.

DH's policy went up slightly after he totaled his other Jeep after spinning out on icy roads and taking out a fence.

Car insurance in our area tends to be on the higher side because we have a lot of rural roads.

We live in FL and have State Farm. We cover three cars and four people. We pay about 2,000 every six months and that is with multi car discounts, good student discount and accident free. Our two boys contribute their own towards it and $900 of that is paid by our 21 y/o DS, who has his own car. Dh's car and mine are both '07 and DS's is a 2000.

For 3 cars- a 2004 Ford, 2002 mini-van, and a 1989 (no that's not a typo- it runs!) Mustang, we pay about $1400 for the year with no collision and a $500. deductible. We have a 17 yr. old son assigned to the "bomb," so I didn't think that was too bad, considering.
