>From the 'man yum' page :

       Proxy configuration
              If you would like to use a proxy with yum you can simply  set  a
              shell  environment variable of http_proxy. Set it to the url for
              your proxy.  Ex: "http://your_proxy:port/"

This looks like just what you need.
