I agree with many others in this and many other posts: shoot raw if you can spend some minimum time to tweak your candidate photos to masterpieces and your hopeless photos to reasonable - within reason, of course. I find it quite improbable that you would never need to crop or straighten your images? Fixing the white balance wouldn't take much more time at the same time.
There are also other advantages. With a 14-bit color per component (R+G+B) you get thousands of times more different colors than with the 8-bit per color component of the (quite old) JPEG format. Notice also that every saving/loading combination reduces the quality of your JPEG image, although many programs work so that the changes are written only during the export.
The only compromises from JPEG are that you most often need to do at least some post processing and thus you need to learn new skills. On the other hand, like a few Nikonians already pointed out, you don't have to worry about selecting the correct sunny/cloudy/shade/etc. setting (or relying on Auto) and you can focus on the picture itself.
