You live in the northwestern corner of Connecticut, within easy driving distance of both Massachusetts and New York State. What would the sales tax in each state be on a total of \$830 worth of purchases? If shopping outside the state would cost around \$20 in gas, in which state would this shopping trip cost the least?
