“Grey is the British, Canadian, Australian, Irish, New Zealand and South African spelling, although gray remained in common usage in the UK until the second half of the 20th century. Gray has been the preferred American spelling since approximately 1825, although grey is an accepted variant.” — Wikipedia
Personally, I use grey and I am American. Gray just looks… weird to me, incomplete, informal.

I use both b/c I can never remember which is correct, and it doesn’t get autocorrected either way! I’m American.

I’m American, and I use both, though it depends on what context I’m using it in. Sounds odd, but if I’m talking about the color, I’ll say “I like the gray comforter better,” but for proper nouns, I tend to use “grey” , like grey wolf, Grey’s Anatomy, and so forth. My weird rationalization I guess!

american and I use them interchangeably. Not sure why. Sometimes it bothers me that I don’t know which I’m supposed to use!
