Did your car insurance rate go up a lot even though you don’t drive much?

Drivers nationwide are facing the biggest car insurance rate increases since 1976.

Up more than 22% compared to last year, rising car insurance rates are one of the biggest contributors to overall inflation, which hit a new six-month high last month, according to the Consumer Price Index.

It represents one of many obstacles standing in the way of the Federal Reserve’s 2% inflation goal and continues to be a pain point for Americans struggling with some of the highest prices in decades.

Car insurers are raising rates higher for a number of reasons. For instance, the cost of repairing cars has gone up as car parts have become increasingly more expensive. There’s also been an uptick in car accidents.
