ALBANY, GA (WALB) – You may think you car insurance premium is high now there's a new survey to support that opinion.

Georgia has the eighth highest car insurance rates in America according to insure-dot-com.

The average Georgia driver pays more than $1,750 a year.

That compares with Maine's average of $900.

One Albany company says you need to shop for the best price before you renew your policy and ask about discounts.

"One factor is a lot of people don't realize if they carry continuous coverage for at least six months then you're eligible for a proof of prior discount," Brent Owens, Southern Harvest Insurance Agency.

The state with the highest average for car insurance was Louisiana.

On average, premiums are more than $2,500.
