#3 or #4 rebar?

Wiki says #3 is 3/8, and #4 is 4/8. Which is the norm for Southeast Texas patio and tool shed slab? Is there much of a difference?

Not much difference, but I'd go with the #4.

If you want to save some money, 20ft lengths of 3/8" rebars cost less than 10ft lengths of 1/2" rebars, not to mention they're also much easier to bend and cut.
