People are driving less due to stay-at-home orders to stop the coronavirus from spreading, and consumer groups say that should mean lower auto insurance premiums. Some companies have responded, but the Consumer Federation of America reports that discounts may be too small and aren’t being applied evenly.

The group suggests calling your insurer and commenting on social media if they don't offer discounts.
