Suicide car bombing in Mosul kills 12 - Yahoo! News

Suicide car bombing in Mosul kills 12 - Yahoo! News

There was yet another suicide bombing in Iraq; one that targeted Iraqi civilians at a gas station. It almost wasn't news, because bombings like this happen all of them. One line in the story, however, struck me.
Lines outside gas stations are routine in Iraq because of persistent fuel shortages.
Iraq has one of the world's largest oil reserves. Little to none of their oil is coming onto the international market - yet they still don't have much fuel in their own country.

I have to ask: what is happening to the oil?
