To output the proxy of the current session:

echo $http_proxy

Since environment variable pointing to proxy may be case sensitive and exist not only for HTTP but HTTPS and FTP protocols, and there's as well the way to avoid usage of proxy server for some addresses or server names with NO_PROXY variable I believe the proper command should be a bit more complex:

env | grep -i proxy

which will produce an output like

NO_PROXY=localhost,127.0.0.0/8,*.local,*.domain.com,192.168.0.0/16
FTP_PROXY=http://192.168.1.6:3128
https_proxy=http://192.168.1.6:3128
HTTP_PROXY=http://192.168.1.6:3128
HTTPS_PROXY=http://192.168.1.6:3128
http_proxy=http://192.168.1.6:3128
