Great news for State Farm customers. We also love this photo the Houston Chronicle used from last month's Lyons Avenue Renaissance Festival. Thank you for being our sponsor and your support of the community Erwin McGowan Agency!

    State Farm, Texas' biggest auto insurer, to drop rates by 3%
    State Farm is decreasing auto insurance rates by 3 percent in Texas, expecting to save the average customer $35 a year. With the exception of a smaller rate decrease in January, State Farm hasn't lowered its rates since 2011 as the industry grapples with an uptick in motor vehicle accidents, expensive auto repairs and volatile weather.
