Business Insider gathered data from S&P Global Marketing Intelligence and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners from over 1,100 rate change filings from companies across the US. This data looks at personal auto insurance policies only, including policies bundled with homeowner's insurance.These 15 states are ranked by totaling the number of policyholders whose rates will increase in 2020, and the average calculated as the average of all proposed rate increases in the state.Note that since every insurance company files separately, there may be more rate changes for auto insurance policyholders on the horizon. The states listed here account only for the rate changes that have already been submitted, which will mostly take place in the first half of 2020.Also, auto insurance rates vary by person. If you have an accident or other event, your rates will change accordingly on an individual basis.More personal finance coverage4 reasons to open a high-yield savings account while interest rates are down It took less than 10 minutes to open a high-yield cash account with Wealthfront and earn more on my savingsHow to buy a house with no money down When to save money in high-yield savingsBest rewards credit cards7 reasons you may need life insurance, even if you think you don't
