If you are asking if the price is better or different buying a round trip fare instead of 2 one-way fares... no, there is no difference.  The price will be the same either way.

Only with the exception that if there is one ticket left at a price it would display for buying one ticket. 

 

If you then try to buy two tickets it could show at the next bracket's price for both, it doesn't average it out necessarily. 

 

*EDIT: often there are more than one ticket available at the current price, so I'm not suggesting that this happens frequently, but it could happen when buying two tickets uses up the current allotment at the current price.

 

So there could be the occasional instance of one ticket being cheaper per person than two tickets purchased at the same time.
