When Quotes Chimp comes to auto insurance, the word frustration comes quickly to mind. So do the words anxiety and insomnia. It's not that people feel badly about auto insurance itself. They recognize it as a necessary expenditure. It's the high cost of auto insurance that they are disgusted with, and the fear that the price will continue to go through the roof in years to come no matter what they try to do to stop it.
