Created: 01/30/2014 7:20 AM WHEC.com

What many consumers probably don't realize is that car insurance rates can vary from month to month.
According to a new report by InsuranceQuotes.com, getting a good insurance rate for your car may mean choosing the right month to purchase it.
In some states, car insurance rates varied close to 50-percent between the cheapest and most expensive months in 2013. December is traditionally the cheapest month to buy car insurance while March is the most expensive.
If you live in Hawaii, car insurance rates were 47.9-percent more in March than in December. Other states that experience sharp differences from month to month are Wyoming, Washington, D.C., Maryland and Pennsylvania.
Experts say you won't know if you're getting a good deal unless you shop often and compare at least three different quotes.
