It's great to be a girl -- at least when it comes to buying auto insurance.
Men pay about $15,000 more for auto insurance over their lifetimes than women do, according to CoverHound. com, an insurance shopping service. But the differences can be even more dramatic, depending on age, location, and other variables.
For instance, an 18-year-old male living in Nevada would pay an average of $6,268 a year to insure his sedan if he had the misfortune to grow up there. That's 51 percent higher than what his twin sister would pay (assuming they have the same grades and driving records), who would fork out just $4,152 to insure an identical car.
