How can I change it so when I search using the omnibar it searches google.co.uk and not google.com.

For example when I want to look at prices for a product, I use the omnibar to search google but it shows me prices in dollars as it is looking results in google.com.

I would like to show results from google.co.uk to get localized search for the UK.

Just delete all your google.com cookies (not the google.co.uk ones) and it will magically start working! See http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1157369

I installed a extension, called Keysearch. So that you can config some keywork to do the search. Fo example, you can config a keywork 'gguk' for google.co.uk, and in the ominibar, you can use gguk plus what you want to search.

    I don't like using extensions for stuff like this, is there not a way to do this natively? – orange Sep 1 '12 at 16:44

Glims will let you define any search engine as the default, along with many other great features  :)

It is not an extension, but a plugin. Agreed, this is not as good as native, but is a one-time install with much less runtime overhead than extensions.
