$4.48 - 12 pack Coke in my local Wal Mart.

I am assuming you are not paying for contents since having insurance on 3 houses means renting maybe ? I have looked for cheaper but my house is an older one(84) on the coast in a town known for its fires and flooding. Ours is 1550 square foot and runs $2100 a year. Differences in price because the limit of coverages chosen by homeowners. One may have more in contents, liability, rebuild cost, etc. so the price is higher.
It is always comparing apples to oranges unless next door, same model, and same interior upgrades and coverages.

I never pay more than $4 and try to get it when it is $3.33 on sale at Publix. Sometimes they even have Buy 2 get 2 free and then you get them for $2.50. They always have either Pepsi or Coke on sale every week and we are not picky.

Pretty ironic to me that a person with the name of "veggienut" drinks coca cola.

What Happens One Hour After Drinking A Can Of Coke - The Renegade Pharmacist

If coke (or cigarettes) cost more in Florida, I think that's a good thing.
