As another option (see my other post about failovermethod) you could
also install the fastest-mirror plugin, which polls all available
mirrors and then uses the fastest. Presumably your local mirror should
be the fastest and win the race :)

The fastest-mirror plugin is discussed in this thread here:

it doesn't seem to have been bundled with yum-utils as yet, though.
