A recent study concluded that New Mexico is the 14th best state for a road trip.
The study was released by Wallethub.com, a social media network for personal finance. It used 21 different metrics that included gas prices, weather, safety, number of scenic highways and other relatable topics.
“WalletHub compared each of the 50 states to determine which state offers the most enjoyment and the least damage to one’s wallet,” a news release with the study stated.
The study provides more information that local communities can use to draw tourists and state residents. Tourists spent an estimated $5.9 billion in New Mexico last year.
