  Iraqi's upset over 1 dollar gas prices
One litre (.25 gallon) of leaded petrol has risen from 50 to 150 dinars (three US cents to one US dollar), oil ministry spokesman Assem Jihad said Sunday.

"The ink on our fingers hasn't had time to dry and the state has already put up the price of petrol," complained taxi driver Salah Mohammed, referring to the indelible ink voters had to dip their fingers into at Thursday's election.

"This decision will affect poor people like me," said Kut resident Jassem Mohammad.

Despite low petrol prices, Iraq has faced a fuel shortage since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's dictatorship following the 2003 US-led invasion.

Government officials have long said that the government-subsidized fuel prices encourage criminals to smuggle fuel to Iraq's neighbours.
