Likewise for me. Iowa is driveable if I had some other reason I might want to go to Iowa, but when I want to save on taxes (and I always do) I can cut them in half any day of the year by making a much shorter drive to Indiana instead. I'd have to be spending a mind-numbingly massive amount of money on eligible products for the difference between Indiana sales tax (6%) and the temporary Iowa sales tax (0%) to be worth the extra gas involved in going in the other direction, even if I valued my free time at $0, which I certainly do not. And of course, when I lived in Michigan, there wasn't a single one of those states that would be remotely practical to visit as a short-term tax haven.

All in all, a good deal for the folks who live in those places, but not too relevant for most people.
