Bike Rack: Trailer Hitch or Roof Rack?

Got myself a road bike (Bianchi Impulso 105 Disc, for fellow cyclists) after contemplating the idea for a year now. Going back to school for senior year and need to bring the bike with me. Driving 2012 RR Sport, currently do not have cross bars or roof rails on it, so it leaves two options:

1) Buy cross bars and Yakima single rack and throw the bike on there? I worry about the bike on the roof for obvious reasons (read: speed) but love the look of cross bars on a Range.

2) Trailer hitch mounted rack. The simple idea but I somehow view every car I see with these racks as dorky.
