Why did Progressive increase my rate by $10?

There have been no changes to my driving record, location, or vehicle. I've been with the company for almost seven years. Still, my premiums went from about $90 to $100 last month. Why?

“It can be shocking when your car insurance rates can change, especially when it seems unwarranted. That said, rate changes are incredibly common.
Sometimes, an increase may be directly related to your driving, but in this case, it sounds like the rate change may be due to other external factors.
For example, if the number of claims in your area increased, companies like Progressive might change their rates to reflect higher payouts. Since insurance is state-regulated, there could have been a mandated increase. Your insurance company would have to increase rates for every policyholder.
