    Post should go/should be going

    ''We should be going now.'
    ''We should go now.''
    Can you tell me the difference between these sentences?
    I understood the diference between the two of these :
    ''I'll be going in vacation this summer''
    ''I'll go in vacation this summer''
    And...the difference seems to be that in the first two sentences is about present and in the next two ...about future. I want someone to explain me only the difference between the first two.
    Please correct my mistakes!! cuz i sure have some.Thanks!

    The present progressive tense is used to show that action is in progress. What I hear in the sentence is that you are up and moving. Your intention to go is in progress.

    With the second sentence, you state your intention, but you may go now or you may not.
