Gas or diesel?

Hello all. I may have a job opportunity coming in Florida that will have my wife and I living a stones throw from the ICW. We have an ole Bayliner Conquest now and it will be enjoyed by a new owner on our local lake in Texas if we leave. We'll be looking to get something in the 35 to 45 foot range to cruise the ICW with occasional trips through the keys and to the Bahamas. Maybe an express cruiser like we have now, or maybe bump it to cockpit motor yacht. Either way, my question is gas or diesel? If we were leaving north America, diesel would be a no brainer, but just to stay semi local for a few years gas boats are sure a lot cheaper. Then again, those mid 90's Sea Ray 450's and 500's only come with diesels. I'd wager a guess they cross the gulf stream real nice also. Looking for people who have both and cruise all these areas to chime in.

Thanks in advance.
