We investigate differences in bidding behavior and participation patterns between simultaneous and multi-round auction formats held in the state of Oklahoma. Theory suggests there could be differential bidding effects arising from synergies and the release of relevant information across the two formats. We find no statistically significant difference in either the number of bids submitted or the bidding patterns observed relative to the control group of auctions held under a uniform format in Texas.
