You can also put that information in /etc/apt/apt.conf:

  Acquire::http::Proxy "http://some.proxy.domain:8080/";;
  Acquire::http::Proxy::some.host.domain DIRECT;

I always do the apt.conf approach since it does not rely upon me
having logged in as any particular user to get the environment
variable set.
