What to use dashes or underscore?

What separator to use when separating words in URLs? Should you use underscores like this: "word1_word2" or dashes like this: "word1-word1". Well I think underscore looks more awesome than dashes. But it's not about a taste or how it looks. It's about how search engines work.

If you search for "word1_word2" you will get results only for "word1_word2" combination together. But if you'll enter "word1-word2" you will get both results for "word1-word2" together and apart for each of the words.

So talking about URLs, which take great part in page keywords, if you have URL with word1-word1, your page has a greater change to appear if someone searches for word1 or word2 and even more chance if someone is searching for word1 and word2. But if your URL will contain word1_word2, you'll have an advantage only when someone searches for word1_word2.
