Perhaps you have had dreams which focus on fuel as the main symbol of the dream. Maybe you are filling your car at a gas station or watching a car burn down. Dreams about gas and fuel can have different meanings and we’ll take a look at some of them here.
What Does it Mean to Dream of Fuel or Gasoline?
Many of us have cars which we need for work and to attend social events, not to mention shopping. We are dependent on fuel to get us to where we want to go so it is understandable that we may dream about gas. Maybe you have a dream about running out of fuel on your way to an important meeting. This can be a reminder to always keep an eye on the fuel gauge.
Ask Yourself These Questions to Understand the Dream Memory
* What type of fuel was in the dream? Were you at a gas station filling up or were you feeding your generator with an old can?
* Who else was in the dream? Was it anyone you know?
* How did you feel?
* What else was happening?
* Did you see any other symbols in the dream?
* Were you a passenger in a car or were you the driver?
* Did you see any numbers in the dream for example the cost of the fuel? Numbers have their own meanings in dreams so it is worth looking them up.
Here are Some Common Meanings for Gasoline and Fuel in Dreams:
Fuel as Energy
We all know that fuel is a source of energy so if we dream about it it can be a connection with our energy levels. What happens in the dream will tell you how much energy you have. If you dream of a gas pump with gushing fuel you probably have masses of energy. It is also possible that you are excited about an upcoming event or a project at work. Maybe you are in line for a promotion. However, if you are driving in a car and run out of gas, your energy levels are low. It is time to have a good look at your life and see what you can do to revitalize your energy.
Needing to Rest and Recharge
On a long journey, it’s not uncommon to stop at a gas station for a rest and a snack. This refuels our batteries so we can drive safely again.
If you dream of the gas station being the main focus of the dream, it indicates that you need to take a break from something you have been spending a lot of time on in recent months. Perhaps you have been working on a project at work which has meant you staying late in the office every evening. You could be exhausted and not taking good care of yourself. Perhaps you need to relax or even have a bit of fun away from the office.
Running Out of Fuel
We have already mentioned running out of fuel, but it is a good idea to look at this scenario in more depth. It can mean more than just recharging your batteries. Often, this symbol can mean that you feel overwhelmed with some situation. It could be something as simple as having too many people over for Christmas lunch or something more difficult like not being able to keep control of your wayward teenage children. You feel like a car that has run out of gas and cannot go anywhere. You need to take stock of the situation and try and take control. Have a day of rest and relaxation and then come to the problem revitalized,
An alternative meaning to a dream about running out of fuel is that you are wasting your time and energy on things that aren’t important. It may be that you are trying to please everyone else and neglecting yourself. It is time that you took more care of both your mental and physical health before you become ill.
Letting Things Go to Waste
Gas can be expensive especially with fluctuating oil prices, so if you dream of fuel being spilled, it can mean that you are letting something go to waste. It could simply be something like food. Perhaps you buy too much food and end up throwing some of it away as the ‘use by date’ arrives before you have time to eat it. On the other hand, it could be something as substantial as wasting your talents. Perhaps you have talent as a singer, but you don’t feel confident. Maybe it is time to at least try and follow your dreams.
Passion and Volatility
Fuel is flammable and you need to take care if you are handling it. Even the vapors can combust. If you see fuel burning in a dream, it can indicate that you have passionate feelings about something or even someone. It is important to remember that fire can be extinguished quickly and so could your passion. This dream is a warning. It is telling you that slow and steady is best.
To See a Fuel Tank
If there is a focus on a fuel tank in your dream, it can mean that you are going to have a lot of work to do that nobody is going to help you with. You are going to have to prepare yourself for this and not expect to get much rest.
If you see a fuel tank burning, it can indicate that you have hidden feelings for somebody. It’s not someone you know well, so you need to sit down and work out why you have these feelings. If you still feel that you are drawn to him or her, it is time to talk to that person and see if he or she feels the same.
To See Barrels of Gasolene
If you see barrels of gasoline, it can mean that you are expecting to gain something. Perhaps you have been investing in the stock market or maybe you have been putting in a lot of time into a relationship.
However, if you dream that you are burning the barrels, you have been acting recklessly and it could put you in danger as well as your family members. It’s time to reevaluate your recent decisions and actions.
If you see other people burning barrels of fuel, it could be that someone you know is putting you in an awkward position. You might even get in trouble with the law so it is time to stand up to this person and remove yourself from the situation.
