Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On August 8, 2023, United States Gasoline Fund, LP (the “Registrant”) entered into a Customer Account Agreement (the “Agreement”) with ADM Investor Services, Inc. (“ADMIS”) to serve as an additional futures commission merchant (“FCM”) for the Registrant. The Agreement requires ADMIS to provide services to the Registrant in connection with the purchase and sale of futures that may be purchased or sold by or through ADMIS for the Registrant’s account. Under the Agreement, the Registrant has agreed to pay ADMIS commissions for executing and clearing trades on behalf of the Registrant.


The foregoing description of the Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, a form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.  


Item 8.01 Other Material Events.


Marex North America, LLC (“MNA”) and Marex Capital Markets, Inc. (formerly ED&F Man Capital Markets Inc.) (“MCM”), which are affiliated entities, serve as futures commission merchants for the Registrant. On July 28, 2023, MNA and MCM formally advised the Registrant that (1) on or about July 14, 2023 MNA transferred its futures clearing business to MCM as part of an internal reorganization (the “Transfer”), and (2) in connection with the Transfer and to avoid confusion as to which futures customer agreement governs, the MCM futures customer agreement will be terminated. The Registrant’s futures trading account with MNA has been consolidated with the Registrant’s futures trading account with MCM and the MCM futures trading account is governed by the Registrant’s futures customer agreement between the Registrant and MNA. MCM has agreed to assume the rights and obligations of the futures customer agreement in place between the Registrant and MNA from and after the date of the Transfer and, therefore, no material impact on the Registrant’s operations is anticipated.

10.1   Form of Customer Account Agreement.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

  By: United States Commodity Funds LLC, its general partner
Date: August 8, 2023 By: /s/ John P. Love
  Name:  John P. Love

President and Chief Executive Officer, and

Management Director




In consideration of ADM Investor Services, Inc. (“ADMIS”) opening and carrying one or more accounts (collectively, “Account”) for the undersigned person(s) (individually or collectively, as applicable, “Customer”), and ADMIS acting as futures commission merchant (“FCM”) for Customer in the execution and clearing of orders for the purchase or sale of commodity futures, commodity options, forward contracts, foreign exchange, physical or cash commodities, and exchange for physical (“EFP”) or exchange for risk (“EFR”) transactions (collectively “Commodity Contracts”), Customer enters into this Customer Account Agreement (“Agreement”) with ADMIS as of the date executed by Customer below.

1.             Relationship and Acknowledgments.     Customer understands, acknowledges and confirms the following:

(a)           The purchase or sale of Commodity Contracts is speculative, involves a high degree of risk and is suitable only for persons who can assume the risk of loss in excess of their margin deposits or of their entire option premium. Customer understands that price changes in Commodity Contracts may result in significant losses, which losses, whether realized or unrealized, Customer would be responsible for and which may substantially exceed Customer’s margin deposits and any other deposits Customer may make. Customer also acknowledges that Customer has received, has read and understands this Agreement and the accompanying risk disclosures.

(b)          ADMIS is authorized to execute and clear orders and transactions and carry positions for the Account, including orders, transactions and positions executed by or on behalf of third- party brokers, to act as counterparty to Commodity Contracts and to exercise commodity options for the Account in accordance with Customer’s oral or written instructions. ADMIS shall have the right to refuse to accept any of Customer’s orders in accordance with Section 1(f) of this Agreement or if such orders would result in a debit equity balance. ADMIS shall also have the right to tape record all telephone conversations with Customer.

(c)          ADMIS or its affiliates may at times be the counterparty and act as principal in regard to any cash, forward, or foreign exchange transactions. Customer further understands and acknowledges that ADMIS may be the counterparty and receive revenue regarding such transactions through the difference between the bid and offer prices quoted or provided to Customer and through markups or markdowns on positions that ADMIS enters into with Customer or with other parties in connection with such positions. Furthermore, Customer acknowledges that ADMIS is not obligated to quote a price for any principal transaction.

(d)          ADMIS shall not be responsible to Customer for any third-party brokers’ inability to execute orders, or for error or negligence or misconduct on the part of any third-party brokers who are not employees of ADMIS.

(e)           Execution of an order for a futures contract contemplates making or accepting delivery, and Customer agrees to notify ADMIS promptly if Customer intends to make or take delivery. Customer authorizes ADMIS to take any action deemed necessary or appropriate by ADMIS in the event ADMIS takes physical delivery for Customer and Customer hereby agrees to indemnify ADMIS from all costs in connection therewith. ADMIS may, in its sole discretion, liquidate any short position in Customer’s account if Customer has not delivered to ADMIS certificates, receipts or other appropriate instruments of delivery at least five (5) days prior to the last trading day of the applicable futures contract.


Classification: Internal


(f)            Upon entry into this Agreement, ADMIS will notify Customer of the exchanges, products, size and number of open Commodity Contracts (net or gross) that ADMIS will at any time execute, clear and/or carry for Customer (such size and number limitation, the “Trading Limits”). ADMIS has the right in ADMIS’ sole and absolute discretion to revise the Trading Limits with no less than one (1) business day’s prior written notice unless otherwise required by the exchange or regulatory body, and provided that, if any revision of the Trading Limits requires Customer to close out open, existing Commodity Contract positions, Customer shall be afforded no less than thirty (30) calendar days to do so (i) unless otherwise prohibited by regulatory body or exchange (which ADMIS will notify Customer of, if practicable), (ii) unless any such positions are open at least seven days prior to the last trading day of the applicable futures contract and are subject to delivery; and (iii) provided Customer’s Account is margined as required by Section 2 of this Agreement, as ADMIS determines in its reasonable discretion. For the avoidance of doubt, ADMIS is under no obligation to accept, and may refuse, orders to establish Commodity Contract positions that do not conform to the Trading Limits.

(g)           Reserved.

(h)           ADMIS: (i) is not a bank, savings and loan association or trust company under federal or state law or regulation; (ii) does not offer check writing services or any similar or comparable service or services; and (iii) is not engaged in the business of banking under Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code, as amended, or otherwise under Applicable Law (as defined below).

(i)            Any market recommendation or information communicated to Customer by ADMIS does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any commodity, or any commodity futures contract.

(j)            Such recommendation or information may be incomplete and may not be verified.


(k)           ADMIS does not operate or maintain a research department or division as defined under or within the scope of CFTC rules or regulations and ADMIS makes no representation, warranty or guarantee as to, and shall not be responsible for, the accuracy or completeness of any information or recommendation furnished to Customer.

(l)            ADMIS and/or its officers, directors, affiliates, stockholders or representatives may have a position or positions in or may intend to buy or sell commodities or commodity futures contracts which are the subject of recommendations that may be furnished to Customer, and the position or positions of ADMIS or any such officer, director, affiliate, stockholder, or representative may or may not be consistent with any recommendation or information furnished to Customer by ADMIS.

2.             Margin. Customer agrees to maintain collateral and/or margin in the Account in an amount that is the greater of (i) the amount required by the relevant clearing house (“AL Margin”) and (ii) an amount in excess of AL Margin as required in ADMIS’ sole discretion (“Required Additional Margin”) and, together with AL Margin, “Margin”), provided that in no event will the amount of Required Additional Margin be more than two times (2x) the AL Margin and, provided further, that the amount of Required Additional Margin will in no event exceed the notional value of the particular Commodity Contract position to which it relates. Customer agrees to wire transfer funds to ADMIS upon verbal or written request or otherwise make payment in immediately available funds and to furnish ADMIS with names of bank officers for immediate verification of such transfers or payments.


Classification: Internal


3.            Customer Funds and ACH Transfers. Customer shall deposit with ADMIS (1) immediately available funds to meet all initial and maintenance margin requirements established by ADMIS as referenced in Section 2 above, pay interest, commission, brokerage, exchange and regulatory fees and charges that have been agreed to with ADMIS and memorialized in a written schedule of fees (such schedule, a “Fees Schedule”), which Fees Schedule may be revised with no less than thirty (30) business days’ prior written notice; however, Customer understands and agrees that fees or charges of third parties (i.e., exchanges, regulators or other providers) within the Fee Schedule are not under the control of ADMIS and that ADMIS may not be able to provide 30 business days’ prior notice of changes in such fees. Fees not included in the Fees schedule, but which apply to transactions conducted for or on behalf of Customer, (such as, currency conversions, deliveries, transfer of accounts, interbank fees and charges, contract market or other self-regulatory organization charges) shall be the responsibility of, and satisfied from the accounts of Customer. Commissions and brokerage may be shared by ADMIS with more than one of Customer’s representatives; (2) deposit amount(s) to pay any deficit or debit balance in the Account; and (3) pay interest and service charges on any Customer deficit or debit balances at the rates customarily charged by ADMIS together with ADMIS’ costs and attorneys’ fees incurred in collecting any such deficit or debit or defending claims brought by Customer in which ADMIS is the prevailing party. If Customer elects to have access to or use Automatic Clearing House funds transfers with respect to the Account, Customer agrees to execute and deliver to ADMIS such additional documents, agreements or information as ADMIS may request or require.

4.             If at any time the Account does not contain at least the amount of funds required by ADMIS, any exchange, clearing house or other regulatory authority, ADMIS may in its commercially reasonable discretion, at any time or from time to time, close out Customer’s open positions in whole or in part or take any other action ADMIS deems necessary to satisfy such requirements, including, but not limited to, transferring funds from other accounts of Customer, including transfers between accounts designated as segregated, secured, cleared swaps or non-regulated. Failure of ADMIS to act in such circumstances in whole or in part, shall not constitute a waiver of ADMIS’ rights to do so any time or from time to time thereafter, nor shall ADMIS be subject to any liability to Customer for ADMIS’ failure to so act. In addition, ADMIS has the right, but not the obligation, to close the Account and liquidate or offset any open position(s) upon receipt of notice of Customer’s death, if applicable. Transfers among accounts for the purpose of margin or collateral or the reduction or satisfaction of any deficit balance or other payment obligation of Customer shall be conducted among accounts of the same beneficial ownership in accordance with CFTC Reg. 1.56.

5.             No Guarantee. Customer understands that there are no guarantees of profit or guarantees against loss in Commodity Contract trading. Customer has received no such guarantees from ADMIS or from any of ADMIS’ representatives. Customer acknowledges that Customer is aware of the risks inherent in Commodity Contract trading and is financially able to bear such risks and withstand any losses incurred in the Account or otherwise by Customer.

6.             Applicable Law. For purposes of and provisions under this Agreement, the Commodity Exchange Act, as amended (“CEA”), rules and regulations of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) or National Futures Association (“NFA”), and any other applicable federal or state law, statute, rule, regulation or administrative requirement or condition to which ADMIS is subject shall collectively be defined and referred to as “Applicable Law.”

7.            Foreign Exchange. Unless Customer provides ADMIS with written or oral instructions to liquidate an open foreign exchange position in the Account, any such position in ADMIS sole and absolute discretion will either be: (a) rolled over as an open position to the next successive business day; or

(b)   liquidated in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and Applicable Law. Alternatively, in order to liquidate an open foreign exchange position in the Account by means of delivering, or taking delivery, of the underlying currency, written or oral instructions to this effect must be given to ADMIS, together with sufficient funds to cover such delivery and all documents required by ADMIS to effectuate this mode of settlement, in accordance with ADMIS’ instructions.

8.             Security Interest and Pledge. All monies, securities, negotiable instruments, forward contracts, foreign exchange contracts, physical or cash contracts, commodity options, open positions in futures contracts and commodities, or other property now or at any future time deposited or maintained in or transferred to the Account, or held by ADMIS or its affiliates for Customer in connection with this Agreement, are hereby pledged with ADMIS, and shall be subject to a senior security interest in ADMIS’ favor to secure any indebtedness, at any time, owing by Customer to ADMIS or its affiliates under this Agreement, without regard to whether ADMIS or its affiliates has made demand or advances with respect to any such property. Such security interest shall include a general right of offset, and Customer waives to the fullest extent possible under Applicable Law any claim or defense that ADMIS’ exercise of any right or action under Applicable Law regarding such security interest violates any privacy or data protection law, rule or regulation to which ADMIS or its affiliates is subject. Customer will not cause or allow any property held in the Account to be subject to any other liens, security interests, mortgages or other encumbrances without the express prior written approval of ADMIS.


Classification: Internal


9.             Foreign Currency. If Customer requests that ADMIS enter into, or if Customer places an order for, any Commodity Contracts denominated in a foreign currency: (a) any profit or loss arising from a fluctuation in the exchange rate affecting such currency will be entirely for the Account and Customer’s risk; (b) all initial and subsequent deposits for margin purposes shall be made in U.S. dollars, in such amounts as ADMIS may in its sole and absolute discretion request; and (c) ADMIS is authorized to convert funds in the Account for margin into and from such foreign currency at a rate of exchange determined by ADMIS in its sole and absolute discretion on the basis of then prevailing market rates. Customer acknowledges and agrees that ADMIS may receive revenue in connection with any such currency conversion by collecting a fee and/or all or a portion of the difference between the bid and offer prices quoted or provided to Customer for such foreign currency conversion.

10.          Compliance with Applicable Law. All transactions by ADMIS on Customer’s behalf shall be subject to Applicable Law and the constitution, rules, regulations, customs, usages, rulings, and interpretations of the exchanges or markets on which such transactions are executed by ADMIS or its agents for the Account (such as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and its affiliated clearing house). ADMIS shall not be liable to Customer as a result of any action taken by ADMIS, or its agents, to comply with Applicable Law or any such constitution, rule, regulation, custom, usage, ruling or interpretation. If Customer is subject to regulation by any regulatory agency or organization, Customer agrees that ADMIS has no duty to ascertain, confirm or ensure that Customer is in compliance with the requirements of such agency or organization.

12.          Delivery Efforts. If at any time Customer shall be unable to deliver to ADMIS any security, commodity or other property previously bought or sold by ADMIS on Customer’s behalf, Customer authorizes ADMIS, in its sole and absolute discretion, to borrow or to buy any security, commodity, or other property necessary to make delivery thereof, and Customer shall pay and indemnify ADMIS for any Losses which ADMIS or its affiliates may sustain thereby and any premiums which ADMIS or its affiliates may be required to pay thereon, and for any Losses which ADMIS or its affiliates may sustain from its inability to borrow or buy any such security, commodity or other property.

13.          Account Controllers. Customer acknowledges and agrees that ADMIS shall not be responsible to Customer for any Losses resulting from conduct or advice (including but not limited to errors or negligence) on the part of any third-party person or entity introducing Customer to ADMIS or having trading authority over the Account, including but not limited to any broker/dealer, FCM, independent introducing broker, commodity trading advisor or commodity pool operator. Customer specifically agrees that ADMIS shall have no obligation to supervise the activities of any such person or entity and Customer will indemnify ADMIS and its affiliates and hold ADMIS and its affiliates harmless from and against all Losses incurred by ADMIS or its affiliates as a result of any actions taken or not taken by such person or entity.

The price at which an order is executed shall be binding notwithstanding the fact that an erroneous report is made. An order which was executed but reported in error as not having been executed shall nevertheless be conclusive and binding except as provided in the following sentence. Customer must notify ADMIS in writing of any objection to, or regarding, an order or discrepancy or disagreement with any confirmation, report or statement forwarded by ADMIS to Customer prior to the opening of trading in the applicable futures contract on the first business day following the day ADMIS sent such confirmation, report or statement, as applicable, to Customer. Such objection shall be delivered to ADM Investor Services, Inc., 141 West Jackson Boulevard, Suite #2100A, Chicago, Illinois 60604, (312) 242-7000, email: custserv@admis.com.

Customer will be able to generate daily, monthly and annual account statements which provide transaction activity, profit and loss statements, open positions and margin balances. Statements are deemed received when made available to Customer by ADMIS, regardless of whether or when Customer actually accesses such statements.

18.          Option Exercise. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Customer is solely and exclusively responsible for taking action to exercise any Commodity Contracts that are an option or option contract. ADMIS shall not be required to take any action with respect to an option or option contract, including but not limited to any action to exercise an option prior to its expiration date, except upon express instructions from Customer. Customer acknowledges and understands that exchanges have established certain exercise cut-off times for the tender of exercise instructions, and that any options in the Account may become or expire worthless if Customer does not provide instructions promptly. Customer also acknowledges and understands that certain exchanges may automatically exercise long in-the-money options pursuant to the regulations of such exchange. Customer acknowledges and understands that ADMIS’ cut-off times may differ from corresponding times established by exchanges, and Customer waives any and all claims for Losses in connection with or which might arise out of an option not being exercised. ADMIS will not be responsible for information regarding option expiration dates and assignment notification or for any errors or omissions regarding such information. Customer acknowledges and understands that short option positions are subject to assignment by an exchange or clearing house at any time, including positions established on the same day that exercises are assigned. Notices of assignment are allocated on a random basis by an exchange or clearing house among all short option positions which are subject to exercise.

34.          Electronic Records and Signatures. Customer agrees that any records stored by a printed media storage method shall be deemed complete, true and genuine record of Account documents and signatures. If Customer elects to open an account through use of an electronic signature under the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, as amended, such electronic signature will meet the requirements of an original signature. However, at the sole discretion of ADMIS, documents signed and transmitted by facsimile machine or electronic mail may be accepted as original documents. The signature of any person or entity thereon, will be considered as an original signature, and the document transmitted will be considered to have the same binding effect as an original signature on an original document. No party hereto may raise the use of a facsimile or telecopier machine as a defense to the enforcement of this Agreement or any amendment or other document executed in compliance with this section. Customer consents and agrees that Customer’s use of a key pad, mouse or other device to select an item, button, icon or similar act/action while using any electronic service ADMIS offers, or in accessing or making any transactions regarding any agreement, acknowledgment, consent, terms, disclosures or conditions constitutes Customer’s signature, acceptance and agreement as if actually signed by Customer in writing. Further, Customer agrees that no certification authority or other third-party verification is necessary to the enforceability of Customer’s signature or any resulting contract between Customer and ADMIS.

35.           Severability and Headings. If any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without invalidating the remaining provisions of this Agreement. Headings of each provision are for descriptive purposes only and shall not be deemed to modify or qualify any of the rights or obligations set forth in each provision.

36.           Termination. Termination of this Agreement may be commenced by either party upon written notice to the other party, provided that if ADMIS terminates this Agreement, Customer shall be afforded no less than thirty (30) calendar days to liquidate Customer’s open, existing Commodity Contract positions as long as Customer’s Account is adequately funded under Section 2 of this Agreement during such period; and, provided account is adequately funded, to transfer them to an alternate futures commission merchant, it being understood that, upon expiry of the thirty-day period, ADMIS shall have the right to liquidate any remaining open Commodity Contract positions. The termination of this Agreement shall not take effect until Customer no longer has funds or Commodity Contracts with ADMIS and has fully satisfied any and all obligations under this Agreement that are due and owing to ADMIS. Until such time of termination as previously stated, the obligations the parties arising from Commodity Contract transactions shall remain in effect.
