This automation is fired every time a product is updated. It checks to see if the price has changed and if the price has changed, sets the previous price as the compare_at_price. To achieve this, the automation uses a database value to cache the current value. The cached value is set to the compare_at_price and sets the new price to the cache on price change. 

Protips: To get correct results for all the price changes, run the workflow for all your products on-demand for the first time to set the cache value.
