Why should I contribute to a Roth IRA/401k over a traditional IRA/401k if when I retire my income is small or nonexistent?

So this is probably a dumb question or one I'm not thinking about correctly, but I've always wondered why I should contribute to a Roth over Traditional IRA or 401k if my income now (I'm 26 and make 70k salary and contribute to a Roth IRA and Roth 401k) is larger than when I retire and have zero income because I'm retired? What am I missing? Thanks for enlightening me.
