Automatic...I would go manual but stop/go traffic ruins the fun of manual. The Auto now-days gives good mileage so going manual doesn't offset it enough to go manual. And when you get tired of shifting a Auto will more then make up the value return.

Manual transmissions still get the best mileage.

I drive an automatic truck.
I drive a stick Jeep. Standard does get better mileage for me.
