Auto insurance costs 83 percent more in Nebraska once a teenage driver is added to a policy, the 23rd-highest increase in the country according to an report. Iowa's 87 percent is 18th highest.

Teenage boys lead to 102 percent higher auto insurance costs in Nebraska while teenage girls lead to 64 percent higher costs.

The most expensive state to insure a teenage driver is New Hampshire where the average premium spikes by 111 percent. Hawaii is the only state that prohibits age, gender and length of driving experience from affecting auto insurance costs. As a result, teen drivers only cost 17 percent more to insure, lowest in the nation.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data indicates traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for teens, accounting for one-third of all deaths among 16-to-19-year-olds.
