Should I shoot at 1080p if I intend to use 720p on the web?

I'm filming video that will only be viewed on the web at 720p, I'm considering shooting in 1080p in case in future I need to up the quality. I'm going to use 720p at present to keep streaming costs down but in future 1080p could be used when costs fall. Will I loose anything shooting at 1080p with the final output being 720p? I'm new to video production hence the question.
