Thank you for replying.

What does the comparison look like over the past few years?
I don't know.  The research to answer your question probably would require considerable effort.  
My guess is that I-Bonds have done better.

What's the after tax yield of each in your state?
One of the many advantages of I-Bonds is that there is no state tax.

How long do you plan to leave the money in each?
Indefinitely; that is until I need the money.
I know that
(1) One has to wait at least a year before one can redeem an I-Bond.
(2) Redeeming an I-Bond before five years, one forfeits some interest.
