The docs for gzip mostly keep "gzip" lowercase except for four references to "GZIP". Wikipedia only refers to "gzip" as lowercase, and I think we should too.

The official GNU page refers to it as "Gzip" which is just ugly. 😆 The official project page however uses lowercase.

RFC 1952 is inconsistent about whether it is GZIP or gzip. In the most prominent places (e.g., the title and abstract), it uses GZIP, but uses gzip most of the time. Based on this, it seems that both are valid.
