We’ve had nearly four years of low gasoline prices. However, we’re paying more for gasoline now, on a relative basis, than we did back in 2008.

Matt Badiali began his career as a scientist after garnering degrees in earth science and geology from Penn State University and Florida Atlantic University, respectively. While living in Miami, Fl, he took a position as an environmental geologist – a job he would later cite as being his least favorite due to the dangerous and filthy aspects of the position. While he did not like his time as an environmental geologist, he cited it as the catalyst for his decision to seek higher education In 2004, while attending the University of North Carolina, where he was studying for his Doctor of Philosophy degree, he bumped into a friend who, realizing the unique skill set Mr. Badiali possessed due to his background in geology, commissioned him to join him in seeking new methods for assisting the average investor. Over the next 10 years, Matt Badiali would establish himself as a formidable presence within the world of investing, particularly in regards to the natural resources, energy, and metals sectors, helping his clients to regularly see double and triple-digit returns on their investment. In 2017, he joined the team at Banyan Hill Publishing, where he is currently the editor of the newsletter and advisory service, Total Wealth Strategist.

When writing, Matt Badiali feels that it is his job to bring the content he is discussing to life. In order to do so, he relies on his extensive research skills, being that he is an avid reader, but he also falls on his real-world knowledge of events, trends, and cycles. As he always chooses to take a hands-on approach when work, Matt Badiali has traveled to oil drilling sites and mines all over the world, including Singapore, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Haiti, and Papua New Guinea. This “boots on the ground” mentality, has been extremely fruitful for Mr. Badiali, and in a short time, he has already garnered a significant following with Total Wealth Strategist.
In looking to the future, Mr. Badiali is extremely excited about the prospects associated with a world that runs off of electricity. The implementation of electric-powered vehicles is slowly but surely picking up steam, and in the coming years, Mr. Badiali believes that the effect that electric-powered vehicles will have on the world will be similar to the impact felt when kerosene began replacing whale oil.
