Also, I have notice that SOME claim that coconut oil has many health benefits not affiliated with polyunsaturates.

Using these data, we find that high ask prices extend time to sale and that the relationship is stronger in thinner market segments.
Our conclusion is that despite the prevalence of information in the market, ask prices play a role consistent with the predictions of search models.
In this section we discuss some models that explain a functional role for ask prices. We outline the empirical predictions of these models, discuss their applicability to an online exchange, and contrast them with some alternative explanations regarding the role of ask prices.
We should note first that in a perfect information setting with costless search, ask prices will play no functional role.
These models can motivate variation in ask prices for identical goods in two ways.
Search models also predict a relationship between ask prices, offers, and transaction prices.
Most of the existing literature testing the predictions regarding search behavior and ask prices uses data from housing markets.
Some of the work also tests the hypothesis that the variance of buyers' willingness to pay will affect ask prices, offers, and time to sale.
This allows us to test whether higher ask prices actually deter buyers from making offers.
As a theoretical matter it is difficult to say whether search costs as we have outlined them here would be significant enough to lead to the same patterns of ask prices, offers, and time to sale observed in other search markets.
