apt question and proxies

I'm not sure if this is where apt related q's go...

anyways, I'm within a firewall and have to go through a proxy to talk to
the outside world.  I know there is a way to handle proxies (or I think 
there is).  I basically use a http_proxy="" enviroment globally to take
care of this.

The issue/question I have is this...Our proxies run a caching service...and
I have noticed that Package lists have a habbit of getting cached (especially
when I'm updating them constantly while doing development).  Is there a way
to work this into the apt-get code so that it can turn off caching. (I know
there is a way to do this with web clients and whatnot)
