What does it mean when you dream about a service?

Providing a service in a dream, depending upon how one feels about the service, may indicate something the dreamer wishes to share, or an ability that needs to be expressed. If, however, one is in need of the service—such as automobile service at a gas station, then a stop or respite to replenish or renew oneself may be indicated.
