    I prefer 'I regret' to 'I am sorry'. To me, 'regret' is courteous enough, but dispenses with the unnecessary idea of apology that I associate with 'I am sorry'.

    The difference that I feel holds, I think, only in writing. In speech, except in formal speech, 'I regret' sounds rather stuffy in a context such as this.
