To dream of a gas station represents habits that give you emotional or psychological sustenance. Something you need to have or need to feel in order to continue with the direction you life is taking. Gas stations reflect a need for energy or resources in order to move forward with goals. Feeling like a loser that needs to inject enthusiasm or confidence into your life or relationship.
A gas station may be a sign that you’ve “run out of gas” or need to re-calibrate in order to carry on. A need to re-energize or reinvigorate your life in some area. Feeling empty and needing to recharge some area of your life. Feeling that you’ve done something in excess or that your relationship is running out of energy.

Hanging out with his friends and mentors helped him to reestablish his confidence.
