May 10 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures climbed on Thursday after a weaker-than-expected rise in U.S. consumer prices cooled inflation fears.
The Labor Department said consumer prices rebounded less than expected in April as rising costs for gasoline and rental accommodation were tempered by a moderation in healthcare prices, pointing to a steady buildup of inflation.
