Item 3.01                                           Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.


On December 6, 2012, Gasco Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) received notice from NYSE MKT LLC (the “Exchange”) indicating that the Company does not satisfy the continued listing standards of the Exchange set forth in Section 1003(f)(v) of the NYSE MKT LLC Company Guide (the “Company Guide”) because the Company’s common stock has traded at a low price per share for a substantial period of time.  The Company has not yet determined what action, if any, it will take in response to this notice.  In the notice, the Exchange predicates the Company’s continued listing on the Exchange on the Company effecting a reverse stock split of its common stock by June 6, 2013.


There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to achieve compliance with the Exchange’s continued listing standards within the required time frame. If the Company is not able to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by the end of the specified period, the Company will be subject to delisting procedures as set forth in the Company Guide.


Item 7.01                                           Regulation FD Disclosure.


The Company issued a press release on December 11, 2012, announcing that it had received notice from the Exchange indicating that it does not satisfy the continued listing standards of the Exchange. A copy of the press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.


In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information presented herein under Item 7.01 and set forth in the attached Exhibit 99.1 is deemed to be “furnished” and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information and Exhibit be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, each as amended.
