A recent study from the Consumer Federation of America revealed some odd findings when it comes to auto insurance.
The CFA used two hypothetical drivers and sought to get them insurance from a variety of carriers. Both drivers were 30-year-old women who had the same amount of experience on the road, lived in similar ZIP codes, and sought the minimum amount of coverage.
As for the differences, one woman was single, rented her house, and hadn't had insurance for 45 days. She also had a spotless record on the roads: no accidents and no tickets.
