North Dakota recorded no overall increase in car insurance from 2012 to 2013. South Dakota increased 1.1 percent. Michigan had the highest increase at 8.6 percent.

Figures compiled for homeowners show that insurance companies increased their rates by an average of 5.1 percent countrywide in 2013. The group says annual average rate increases have varied between 5 percent and 7 percent for homeowners insurance over the last five years.

South Dakota had the second highest percentage increase in the region at 7.9 percent from 2012 to 2013.
