What determines prices for car insurance?
I'm 19 and buying insurance for the first time, so I don't really know what I'm doing yet. I'd appreciate any advice you have for me.
There are many, many factors that influence car insurance prices. The most common ones include:

- Years of driving experience
- Credit history (in some states)
- Caims history
- The car you drive
- How much you use your car
- The type and amount of coverage you buy
