FL car insurance rates decline

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Car insurance rates in Florida are the lowest they've been in six months, according to a new study by insurancequotes.com.

New numbers show rates can swing close to 50 percent in some states over a six-month period.

Insurancequote.com says its new study is an example of why people should shop around for the best deal on insurance.

Hawaii saw car insurance rates plummet 47.9 percent between March and December 2013.

Florida shoppers aren't as luck with rates going down only 6.5 percent between July 2013 and January 2014.

The numbers are calculated based on someone with a clean driving record.
