Connecticut might as well have a "do not enter" sign up at its borders, if people believe a new summer road trip survey.
The personal finance website WalletHub ranked the state as the worst in the country for summer road trips.
Researchers gave Connecticut poor marks a number of categories.
WalletHub said it compared all 50 states across 21 summer travel-related metrics. They ranged from average gas prices and quality of roads to the number of attractions.
Oregon, Nevada and Utah were the top three best states.
Mississippi, Alaska and Connecticut rounded out the top 3.
Researchers said despite gas prices being lower than usual, filing up the tank for a long road trip can still be pretty pricey. In Connecticut, the average price for a gallon of regular gas is $2.45. Add in accommodations, activities and dining, it's a $600 billion expense for Americans each year.
