Android Studio gradle takes too long to build

My Android Studio project used to build faster but now it takes a long time to build. Any ideas what could be causing the delays?
I have tried http://stackoverflow.com/a/27171878/391401 but no effect. I dont have any Anti virus running which could interrupt the builds. My app is not that big in size as well (around 5MB) and it used to build within few seconds but not sure what has changed.

10:03:51 Gradle build finished in 4 min 0 sec
10:04:03 Session 'app': running
10:10:11 Gradle build finished in 3 min 29 sec
10:10:12 Session 'app': running
10:20:24 Gradle build finished in 3 min 42 sec
10:28:18 Gradle build finished in 3 min 40 sec
10:28:19 Session 'app': running
10:31:14 Gradle build finished in 2 min 56 sec
10:31:14 Session 'app': running
10:38:37 Gradle build finished in 3 min 30 sec
10:42:17 Gradle build finished in 3 min 40 sec
10:45:18 Gradle build finished in 3 min 1 sec
10:48:49 Gradle build finished in 3 min 30 sec
10:53:05 Gradle build finished in 3 min 22 sec
10:57:10 Gradle build finished in 3 min 19 sec
10:57:11 Session 'app': running

Answer

Found the reason!! If Android Studio has a proxy server setting and can't reach the server then it takes a long time to build, probably its trying to reach the proxy server and waiting for a timeout. When I removed the proxy server setting its working fine.
