it depends on the type of image it is. Generally line art and images with fewer colors and more broad areas of colors compress best with gif. PNG also works well, but usually will be a larger file (better qualiity however). Photos will compress much better usually using JPG. But You have different options and levels available when compressing using JGP, so it depends.

Use the save for web &/or devices section of Photoshop, where you can compare side by side various compression models/formats.
