Four Things Michiganders Would Rather Spend Their Money on Than Car Insurance

We pay more for car insurance in Michigan than any other state- here’s what we could be spending the money on instead.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: we pay more for car insurance than any other state in the nation. How much more? The difference between Michigan and the national average is $1076. We pay over a thousand dollars more every year in car insurance than most of the country; here are 4 things Michiganders could be spending their hard-earned money on instead.

Kid Rock is on tour right now. The Official Badass Preshow Party Package is sold out as are most of the good seats but if you don’t mind sitting in the upper deck at the United Center in Chicago, you could get a pair of tickets for about $40 each (+surcharge). Earmark $250 for a place to crash for the night and you’ve still got about $700 left over for a weekend in the Windy City.

Instead of buying a round for your friends, you could bring home 9 kegs of Two-Hearted.

Head to South Haven and you and 5 friends could spend 6 hours on the big lake with $310 left over to buy a filet-o-fish at McDonald’s on the way home if you don’t catch anything.
