Mike Barnicle made an excellent analogy today on Morning Joe - he noted that when sneakers that normally sell for $29 go on sale for $19, no one calls it a price hike when the sale ends and the price goes back to $29.

anytime you raise your price from 20 to 29 that is a price increase.

it does not matter if you are coming off a sale or what.

You have raised the price
