What does Gassed mean?

Pumped up

When you’re super excited about something, you could say you’re “gassed.” Let’s say your buddy, Jack, can’t stop talking about the new movie premiere. He might say, “I’m so gassed for the movie premiere tonight, I could hardly sleep last night.”

This slang is quite popular among the younger crowd, like Gen Zers. You’ll find it popping up in face-to-face conversations, online chats, and text messages. It’s pretty much the same as being amped, pumped, juiced, or stoked.

But don’t get fooled, ‘gassed’ has another meaning too. It can also mean feeling worn out or even feeling intoxicated. The context in which it’s used will help you figure out what someone means when they say they’re ‘gassed’.

Example for using ‘Gassed’ in a conversation

Yes, I’m gassed for it! I can’t wait to see all the action and special effects.

Me too! I’ve been counting down the days. It’s going to be epic.
